Clarendon campus is one of Nottingham College's biggest campuses, featuring amazing facilities including sprung-floor dance studios, a live music venue, recording studios and two performance theatres.

Clarendon is home to our music and performance students as well as Access to Nursing, childcare (early years), computing, hair and beauty and hospitality and catering.

If you want to pursue a career that you love and makes going to work every day interesting and enjoyable, choosing a course with us will help you to learn more about the creative industries and how you can find your place within them.

You’ll have plenty of opportunity to showcase your work too, in one of our many performances. These shows are often visited by industry experts and practitioners looking for the next generation of talent. In 2017, we took this to the next level, as we were the only company from the East Midlands to perform at the National Theatre in London!
