Neighbour Information

We aim to be respectful to our neighbours throughout the academic year. We advise all our students and staff to be considerate when parking on the roads surrounding the college, and we do not tolerate students disrupting our neighbours.

We apologise for any disruption which our usual activities, or seasonal activities, such as open evenings, may cause. For a list of when all our major events occur, such as open evenings, please visit the Key Dates page.

If you would like to make a complaint, please contact the college switchboard at 023 8043 5636. We advise neighbours not to make complaints publically through our social media, as they may not be addressed since this is not an official channel for complaints.

If you have any questions, please call the college and we will be happy to direct your queries to the most appropriate member of staff.
