St Brendan's Sixth Form College was almost entirely rebuilt in 2009 to provide university-standard facilities to students within a relaxing and supportive environment.
We are located on one site with pleasant grounds, which are used and enjoyed by students throughout the year. These have been extensively landscaped to reflect our historic surroundings. The College ensures that its provision of technology is at the 'cutting edge' and continues to provide students with the latest technology to develop within their studies. Equipment and software provided is the same as that used by higher education institutions and industry. The focus on providing specialist facilities, dedicated to meeting the needs of 16 – 18 year old students, makes St Brendan's an ideal and enjoyable place to learn and develop as a young adult.
All buildings have been designed to minimise the College's impact on the environment, utilising the earth's natural resources, such as sunlight and rainwater. They are designed to minimise the carbon emissions, whilst providing a great place to work and study.
All areas of the College are accessible for wheelchair users.
The College is a very safe site and we work hard to ensure that it remains so. In assisting with this, it is vital that no head coverings are worn that prevent easy identification. This means for example, that motor cyclists must remove helmets immediately after parking their bikes in the designated parking space.
The College actively works to discourage smoking. However, some members of the community are smokers and, in order to keep students safe, a small outdoor area near the entrance has been identified as the only area where students, staff and visitors may smoke on site.
Examples of the facilities include:
