Based in the Georgian quarter, we offer eight integrated three-year degrees, three one-year Foundation Certificates, a primary school and a part-time performing arts academy for 4 to 19 year olds. We were co-founded by Sir Paul McCartney (our Lead Patron) and Mark Featherstone-Witty (our Principal).
