So where is Chesterfield College? The clue is in the name really! As you might have guessed, we are in Chesterfield. In fact, we’re about a five minute walk from the centre of Chesterfield and in the other direction is the train station.
Arches – University Centre
Redeveloped in 2016 this part of the Infirmary Road campus is dedicated to our university level students.
Infirmary Road Campus
The majority of our courses are taught along the main Infirmary Road campus. Here you’ll find an onsite Costa Coffee, the dining hall, and the top teaching facilities you need to help take your learning to the next step.
You’ll also find what we call the ‘Heartspace’. It’s the meeting centre of the college, and where we host a number of big events and student activities throughout the year.
If you have an appointment with us you’ll need to report to main reception who will sign you in and notify the relevant members of staff of your arrival.
If you choose a course within Auto-Engineering, then chances are that you’ll be learning at our Lockoford Lane campus – just 5 minutes walk from the main campus.
Here you’ll have the chance to learn in a fully functional, modern, garage environment, working on real cars with real equipment!
Queen’s Park Sports Centre
In 2016, the new Queen’s Park Sports Centre opened its doors to the public and to our students. In partnership with Chesterfield Borough Council and Sport England, the college has invested in Queen’s Park as a new, state-of-the-art facility for our sports students to benefit from. Our Sport and Wellbeing Academy, located within the sports centre, includes dedicated training rooms and a range of new equipment and facilities that will enable our students to hone their practical skills and develop their knowledge of the theory behind their studies.
Sports students are able to interact with members of the public, which provides opportunities to offer personal training and coaching in a real-world environment and helps develop the experience and confidence that employers in the industry are looking for. The Sport and Wellbeing Academy also benefits students from across college who have opportunities to use the facilities during their course.
Situated in the Old Boys’ Grammar School on Sheffield Road, West Studios is a creative centre housing 17 small creative and community businesses. Recently refurbished, the environment is inspiring and contemporary, perfect to use as an address for creative businesses.
Through regular workshops, creative groups, exhibitions and events, it aims to help establish and grow the creative sector within the local community. With a fully equipped meeting room and flexible ‘Drop In Studio’, West Studios offers competitive room hire options to businesses and community groups too.
The large, informal reception area allows visitors to relax with freshly brewed coffee from the Northern Tea Merchants and browse the handmade gallery shop full of high quality, unique gifts and cards from local artists.
West Studios also acts as a fantastic facility for the college’s creative arts students. Students can exhibit works, learn from current tenants and are also offered heavily discounted studio rates to become artists in residence should they want to start their own business following their studies.
