Braintree has a number of beauty therapy suites and a recently refurbished hair salon giving students the opportunity to develop their skills in a state of the art facility. The campus’ hair and beauty salons are open to the public during term time and offer great prices and promotions throughout the year. For those aspiring athletes out there, we provide excellent sports courses and facilities. Facilities include a large well equipped sports hall which houses the futsal (football equivalent) team, who have had much success in their league.

We are very excited to offer new Plumbing courses, starting from September 2014, with brand new facilities being built over the summer period. We are also launching our brand new Learning Shop, offering pre-Apprenticeships, Maths and English tuition plus employment skills courses for adults. For further details on the Learning Shop please call (01206) 814202.

It’s not all about study however. Why not grab a bite to eat at the campus café, ‘Food!’, visit our on-site shop or have a game of pool in the student common room? The performing arts and music students put on a range of shows and gigs throughout the year for all to enjoy.
