New North Road

The best learning environment for students

We've been upgrading our Bournemouth and Poole sites and investing in brand new facilities

Fantastic new facilities at North Road

What's been happening

The £12 million project includes a brand new building that is home to a contemporary 136-seat Performing Arts Theatre, a Digital Media Centre and new laboratories for Health and Medical Sciences.

The new building, which is sat adjacent to our new STEM Centre that opened in 2013, provides our students with state-of-the art facilities to improve their learning environment. Digital design suites and mac rooms, new Childhood and Social Care classrooms, Performing Arts rehearsal rooms and state-of-the-art laboratories all feature in this exciting new structure. The building is also sustainable with voltaic panels installed on the roof to generate electricity for the building.

We have been working with construction firm Wilmott Dixon to complete this project. They celebrated the commencement of building works with a traditional ground breaking ceremony. Find out more

The Grand Opening

We celebrated the new facilities with a launch in October, where we were joined by about 50 invited guests. Watch the video to see what happened.
