What makes us different

SGS (South Gloucestershire and Stroud College) is a small college with great access routes from the both the M5 and M4.

We pride ourselves on our small class sizes. This enables us to get to know you as an individual not a number.

We offer high quality courses with industry professional.

Even though we are a small institution our facilities are second to none and our Sports Academies are very sucessful and would give you a good start if this is the career choice you are looking for. Anything from Table Tennis to American Football.

Our Zoological Management and Conservations students study at the old Bristol Zoo in Clifton and the new Wild Place Project. At the Wild Place Project students will learn in classrooms where a wolf or giraffe will walk past the window as you undertake your lessons.Also students will get a unique opportunity to see the breaking down of a zoo and moving animals to their new homes.


Throughout my time, I believe I have grown into a completely different performer from the person I came in as. The course has helped me to understand my strengths but pushed me to work on my weaknesses and I have now evolved to be a confident and well-rounded performer. Finally, I have experienced some incredible opportunities whilst studying such as touring New York and getting to perform in the Netherlands.
