NEW courses are available at this campus in 2017:

The campus has undergone recent renovations including the creation of purpose-built construction and building services workshops kitted out with industry-standard tools and equipment, as well as new art studios, enhancements to social spaces and new English and maths zones.
Thanks to its enviable countryside location, the Forest of Dean Campus is home to the Outdoor Education Academy, nearby sports fields, tennis courts, a running track, swimming pool and fitness centre – ideal for those who lead a healthy, active lifestyle.
Our talented catering and hospitality students work in our on-site, commercial Beechwood Restaurant, which holds a Certificate of Excellence and is rated No.1 in Gloucestershire on TripAdvisor.
Other facilities include a large theatre, an infinity photography studio, modern library and on-site hair salons, in which our hairdressing students hone their trade on real clients.
