Our Colindale Campus is the new, state-of-the-art hub for our construction, hairdressing and beauty courses
Barnet and Southgate College
7 Bristol Avenue (formerly Lanacre Avenue)
London NW9 4BR
The new site is a relocation of the former Grahame Park Campus, on Grahame Park Way, to Bristol Avenue and will be a short 5 minute walk from Colindale tube station. The accessible, urban location of the new campus and its close proximity to Underground and bus links will ensure an improved experience for college students and the local community.
It forms part of a £550 million urban master plan to regenerate the wider Grahame Park area. Building works began in February 2015, with the aim to have the new campus completed and ready for the start of the academic year in September 2016.
The new modern facility brings education and training closer to the local community. A new college also brings with it better facilities, with a state-of-art learning environment. This includes the Construction Technology Centre for the College’s brickwork, carpentry & joinery, plastering, wall & floor tiling and plumbing courses. The Centre offers access to cutting edge facilities in line with industry advancements and supports skills development and progression through to higher level qualifications. The Centre also includes the Wella Centre of Excellence, a training hair salon open to the public to feature the College’s hairdressing and barbering courses, and the Beauty Skills Centre.

Additional community services at the new campus include a new London Borough of Barnet Public Library and a new community services area for the Barnet Centre for Independent Living (B-CIL). B-CIL is a hub centre to provide support and advice for people with disabilities in respect of a range of matters such as advocacy matters, life skills, computer skills and employment. It is a centre run largely by people with disabilities for people with disabilities.
The new campus ensures contemporary educational facilities within a new flexible purpose-built building that showcases education and offers the College a new identity in the local area.
“We are proud of securing an investment that will create an outstanding College asset in the heart of this major regeneration development. This is great news for our future students and good for the community as a whole. The move might only be about half a mile on the map, but it’s a world away in terms of the opportunities it offers for the future of the College. We have room to expand and can improve our facilities to deliver a real 21st Century learning experience.”
