What is happening at ACRES?


All the courses that have been running online during the Spring term are continuing during the Summer term. Some wonderful learning has been happening and amazing work has been produced. We are very proud of all tutors and students who have continued to teach and learn online and we hope to be able to celebrate very soon their achievements in a new online gallery.


ACRES have been working throughout the pandemic to maintain relationships with students, tutors, venues and partner organisations. We know that many of you are waiting for courses to return face to face and we are doing all we can to get courses ready for you. ACRES is a community based college and relies on local venues. As these start to reopen and it becomes safe to meet others in small groups we look forward to getting courses back into the community.


A few Summer term courses will be added to our website shortly, these will start after the May half term and details will be shared on our mailing list. Sign up to our mailing list here


As the roadmap continues to move us out of lockdown, the ACRES programme will be able to come back strongly in September with a range of new and familiar courses.


So . . . . watch this space . . . !
