    Essex Schools Showcase for the Arts is taking place in High Chelmer this week.  Some of our college students will  have their artwork displayed at this event.  The showcase is taking place from Wednesday 12th July - Wednesday 19th July inclusive, from 10.00am to 2.00pm.   We hope you enjoy the wonderful display of art our students have produced.

    The Arts and Science festival took place at the college this week and proved to be a huge success. All of the students took part and they all showed great enthusiasm whilst displaying excellent behaviour. The staff were all equally enthusiastic. The students walked away with a new found interest in Arts and Science and a great time was had by all!
