Welcome back everyone for a great new term on TWO sites! Not only do we have our fantastic suite of rooms at The Centre at Burnholme, but since September, we have also been operating from The Jam Factory in The Groves. I am delighted to report that amazing things are already happening in both places, and we are settling down nicely in our new home. In the above photo you can see some of our staff, trainees and students propping up the Jam Factory wall, rock 'n' roll style. (From left, Dougie, Spencer, Faz, LeAndre, Damien and Izzy.
I really do need to make a bit of a fuss (again) about the superb exam results in the summer. For the first time we had students completing performing and creative arts qualifications, and it was also the first time that we had delivered the full Level 3 Diploma. Please check out the link to
The Press, where you can read all about the successes of our students, and if you haven't read this article yet, well, prepare to be very impressed. Well done everyone!
This year, we have more students than ever for our daytime classes, and in the evening, we are running the full range of community clubs with some new ones too.

Have a wonderful term everyone!
