The main college is set in lovely surroundings on the outskirts of Lancaster city centre. Students have the opportunity to work in the grounds as part of horticulture and environmental art sessions. Some aspects of the Forest Schools programme are delivered on site and John Muir Exploration and Conservation students make good use of the space to expand their knowledge and skills while gaining a qualification.

The garden has several greenhouses and allotment space where students grow vegetables and tend to plants and shrubs. Students have worked with local conservation groups to increase accessibility and maintain the natural habitat for wildlife.

All our teaching spaces are accessible and versatile, with a range of Assistive Technology available throughout including interactive whiteboards and specialist software.

Many rooms also have specialist resources for sessions involving music, film making, IT, printworks, dance, sensory learning, cooking, etc, to engage students and support active participation. This includes tracking hoists, movement harnesses, electric rise-and-fall desks, multimedia audio visual equipment, video editing suite, switch adapted photography and film making equipment, and a recording studio with a range of accessible music equipment and software.

The college also has several ‘studio’ spaces used for performance, dance, music, enterprise events and social functions. Students have access to a wide range of therapy equipment to use within sessions and around the college, as well as a fleet of accessible vehicles for off-site learning activities.
