About the facilities

If you’re into fashion, design, IT, performing arts or media, we have the kind of leading-edge workspaces at Banbury college that you’ll need to flex your creative talents!

There is a photography studio, television and radio studios, and fully-equipped Mac suites for graphic design. When your masterpiece is ready, there’s an inspiring central atrium space for exhibitions and a cinema room for showcasing work.

There’s no better place in Oxfordshire for motor vehicle study. Our on-site motor vehicle centre has the latest engine-diagnostic facilities and vehicle lifts. Our link with Hyundai means learning is modern and relevant as you’ll be training on newly-registered vehicles. Our teaching staff have excellent links with the motorsport industry and a wealth of experience to share!

Our Learning Environment is a space for you to study and focus on your work. You will be able to book PCs, access resources and borrow books.

You can grab a drink or a bite to eat from the café on campus or unwind and get pampered with a variety of hair and beauty treatments at The Salon. Discover our excellent facilities that are open to members of the public.
