About Oaklands College
Award winning facilities set within acres of wide open countryside The St Albans Campus officially opened the doors to its new Discovery Centre and Sports Zone in March 2013. This stunning new facility has already secured recognition from the Royal Institute of British Architects, a body that aims to recognise buildings that set the standard for great architecture in the UK. This facility provides state of the art specialist workshops and design studios, a large indoor multi-sports hall, gym and virtual learning environment. The sports hall ranks as one of the largest in the county and is supported by brand new floodlit artificial pitches with public viewing spaces meaning all year round accessibility and capacity to support elite sport development.
The new Hospitality and Catering facilities, The Stables Restaurant, opened in September 2013 and are now the only training kitchens of their type available in this part of Hertfordshire, capable of delivering courses up to the VRQ Level 3 in Professional Cookery as well as BTEC Level 3 in Hospitality.
To continue developing the College's facilities the college has created a masterplan for the further re-development of the St. Albans campus. The funding of the re-development is dependent on the receipt of planning permission for residential development on part of the St. Albans campus. The College, in conjunction with Taylor Wimpey, submitted a planning application in October 2013 for house building and for new teaching and administration buildings ;together with new student accommodation
