Right at the heart of the college campus you will find our light and spacious Atrium, designed as a meeting and social place for all students. It is where everything happens at lunch and break times, such as charity fundraising events, student fairs and competitions. It is also where our media wall is located, keeping everyone informed of what is going on in the college.
Our main outlet serves a range of hot foods. The lunch menu changes every week, but it often features choices such as fish and chips, pasta, pizza, curries and jacket potatoes.
