Bracknell and Wokingham College is located in the heart of Bracknell with train and bus stations a short, 10-minute walk away.

There are also various bus stops close to the campus itself and plenty of safe, on-site bicycle parking, so however you choose to get here, it’ll be safe and convenient. 

Whatever your area of interest, you’ll be able to study it here, with some of the best equipment and teachers available. We have many industry-standard facilities, including: motor vehicle and construction workshops, science labs, modern salons and beauty treatment rooms, photography and art studios, IT suites—including CAD workstations —and a Sport England-grade sports facility.  

On a typical day here, in between lessons, there’s space for quiet study in our Learning Resource Centre or hanging out with friends in the many spaces and communal areas. Missed breakfast or need a snack in between classes? You can grab a bite to eat or something to drink in our café or canteen. You can also visit our Harmony Salon for a variety of hair and beauty treatments.

Activate Learning provides a “calm, welcoming and inclusive learning environment” where learners “enjoy their learning and are respectful of their peers and teachers.” Ofsted 2022
