Shipley College Additional Learning Support Foundation Learning 6

Shipley College facilities are spread over five buildings, all in Saltaire, and including some of the village’s most significant structures.

The Salt Building, the original village school in Titus Salt’s day, houses classrooms, the main college reception, student services and one of the college’s popular cafes.

Further down Victoria Road, next to the train station, is the Mill Building - the first public building added to Saltaire after the mill itself - and these days home to appealing Art & Design and Floristry teaching spaces.

The Exhibition Building, opened in 1887 as the School of Art and Science, centres around its well-loved main hall, which has had many uses over the years, and is home to the Exhibition Cafe. Alongside this are classrooms, labs, and various other teaching spaces - some with great views of the mill!

At the top of the Exhibition Building is our atmospheric library and Learning Resource Centre, which provides our students not only with fantastic study spaces, but all manner of resources - books, e-books, magazines and DVDs, plus a range of technology including laptops, digital cameras, voice recorders, VR headsets and a 3D printer!

Next door to the Exhibition Building is a newer addition, the Jonathan Silver Building - a more modern teaching resource, purpose-built in 2015 to provide excellent facilities for Foundation Learners. Directly behind are a series of greenhouses for our well-established horticulture and gardening courses.

The College also uses parts of Victoria Hall, providing further facilities - the fitness suite, sports hall, air cabin and further classrooms. 
Beyond the buildings and their contents, the attractions of Saltaire are very much part of the offer at Shipley College, with Roberts Park and the canal regularly utilised for projects, enrichment activities and even teaching.
