Café & Restaurant

Situated in the College’s bright and airy Mall area, the Café and Restaurant are the two most popular places for students to eat during breaks and lunchtimes.

The Café is a great place to go for a light snack and with a range of options such as wraps and sandwiches and delicious freshly-baked cakes and cookies, there’s something for every palate.

The Restaurant serves a variety of hot meals, cooked breakfasts and lunches, which include jacket potatoes and a selection of daily specials, always with a vegetarian option.


Our brand new state-of-the-art theatre is situated on the first floor of our new Bishopsfield Road Campus development, in E building. The theatre is available for external hires all year round and has a capacity of 120 seated and the seating bank can be flattened or raised depending on the event or occasion. The staging can also be customised to suit.

The theatre is fitted with a fantastic, £50,000 sound system as well as various lighting equipment. The entire theatre is painted with black-out paint for optimal visual impact during performances. We can provide as much or as little event support as you need, and you are more than welcome to come along and view the theatre beforehand.
