All work and no play? No thanks. We encourage everyone to get stuck into college life.

Sports Hall

The Gordon Banks Sports Centre (Newcastle College)

All students get a discount on membership at our 25-station, air-conditioned gym. There’s a dance studio, a four-badminton court sports hall and loads of fitness classes to help you stay in shape.

Visit the salon

The Academy of Hairdressing and Beauty Therapy salon is open to students. Why not book a hair appointment, get a manicure or a facial on your lunch break or after college?

Academy of Sport

NSCG believes in sport for all and that it’s desirable to develop a healthy mind in a healthy body. We believe that sport can promote team-working and confidence as well as fitness. You can indulge your sporty side in lots of ways when you study with us.

Coffee Shop

If you love coffee, you’ll love this hot spot. Grab yourself a freshly brewed Starbucks (at Newcastle College) or Costa (at Stafford College) coffee and sip and surf, or get together with your friends and catch up.
