You will be struck the visual beauty of photographic displays, pieces of art and sculpture, unique and brilliant pieces of woodwork and projects of all types.

The Canteen as well as the Common Room will show students grouped with friends and working or discussing the latest happenings.
There are constantly shows, exhibitions and gigs both on campus and off campus as students exhibit their progress to their fellow students, parents and friends. Field trips and off campus activities and visits are also part of the life of the College.
