The free weekly activity sessions are open to all students with a variety of activities on offer.
Mark Stevens, College Sports Activator says "We pride ourselves on providing quality sports opportunities for all our students, and removing the barriers to participation. The Health, Wellbeing and Sport programme is helping to create a culture of regular activity within the College, and change the behaviours of students and staff".
