We will be holding our summer graduation ceremonies at the Kings Hall in Stoke-on-Trent, beginning on Friday 15 July and continuing from Monday 18 July until Thursday 21 July inclusive.

We email students directly when booking opens, and provide further details about gowning, and photography at that time. 

The impressive Grade 2 listed Kings Hall provided a spectacular setting for our November Awards Ceremonies. Our graduates, their families and friends were very complimentary about the venue which is a short distance away from our main campus.

The Catalyst

Following completion of The Catalyst on our Stoke-on-Trent campus, we are excited to announce that our new flagship building will become the summer venue for our post ceremony reception and associated activities, including photography. We will be welcoming graduating students and their families to our Leek Road site, where gowning takes place, and there will be a park and ride service operating between our campus and the Kings Hall.
