Campuses and Facilities[edit]

The College has two campuses, one located in Broxbourne, and one in Ware.


The Ware campus is situated just seconds from the town and is home to the brand new Creative Arts and Enterprise building.[2] The campus offers students state-of-the-art training facilities in subjects including fine arts, design, visual merchandising, fashion and photography, hair and beauty, media make-up, game design and new specialist qualifications.

Inspires Salon[edit]

The College's Inspires salon is a Centre of Excellence for Wella and Dr Belter and an approved school of the Hair and Beauty Industry Association (H.A.B.I.A). It includes five hairdressing salons and six beauty salons.


The College's Broxbourne campus is designed to inspire with industry standard facilities, including The Atrium Restaurant, The Michael Morpurgo Theatre, Engineering and Motor Vehicle Workshops, Childcare & Care Suites, and JetBlueAir – an 18-seat aircraft cabin which has been lifted straight from a real British Airways plane.
