The College at Braintree

The Braintree Campus is the newest of Colchester Institute’s campuses set in attractive grounds. It is located in the historic area of Bocking, just a short walk away from the town centre, railway station and Freeport Designer Village.

The campus offers a friendly environment with some specialist facilities, for photography and motorcycle maintenance. Students at the College need not miss out on their hair and beauty treatments as the campus salons ‘Ci Salons’ offers great prices and promotions on a range of treatments throughout the year. In addition to the existing beauty therapy suites, a brand new hair salon was opened in 2011, also offering discounted cuts and treatments.

For those interested in sport, there are excellent facilities, including a large well equipped sports hall, which has hosted the GB under 20 Men’s Basketball Team and has been a venue for international matches. It houses the Colchester Basketball Academy and is also the venue for the futsal (football) programme, which has had much success in the league.

You can grab a bite to eat at the campus café –Food! This caters for all diets and tastes with hot food being served daily along with salads, sandwiches, coffee and much more.

Have a bit of spare time between classes? Why not visit our on-site shop which sells a wide range of stationery and supplies, ensuring you are always equipped for your next class. If it’s theatre, live music and visual arts that interests you, the campus hosts an exciting year round programme of gigs, plays and exhibitions, presented by the creative arts students. As well as all the advantages of being at this vibrant campus, there are plenty of attractions locally including the medieval barns at Cressing Temple, jousting knights at Castle Hedingham, and lakeside walks at the popular Great Notley Country Park and Discovery Centre.
