Thurrock Campus

Located in Grays High Street, the brand new £45 million buildings offer you cutting-edge services including a fine dining restaurant, Waves.

There are specialist workshops and studio spaces linked to courses for construction, engineering, media and creative arts, in addition to facilities for logistics, childcare, health & social care and IT courses.

The campus’s state-of-the–art hairdressing and beauty therapy salons are open to the public and include a working spa complete with floatation tank.
The campus comprises two buildings: the West Building and the East Building. An outdoor seating area links the two buildings and there is a pleasant green area to the south. There is also an outdoor amphitheatre to showcase the College’s acting and musical talent.

The car park is situated in the south-east corner with access from Sherfield Road, offering 70 car parking spaces, including three disabled spaces and a coach drop off point. A second car parking area with spaces for the disabled is situated to the south of the West Building.

High House Production Park

High House Production Park is an international centre of excellence for creative industries in Thurrock that will inspire a new generation.
South Essex College delivers apprenticeships and a full-time course at The Backstage Centre.

The Production Arts Level 3 Diploma gives students the knowledge, practical skills and confidence to enter the entertainment industry as a member of the backstage production team. More than just a standard college course, the diploma gives young people the opportunity to learn about stage lighting, sound and technical maintenance through live briefs.

Royal Opera House

The Royal Opera House (ROH) is working in partnership with South Essex College to offer a course in costume design. The partnership encourages participants to discover and develop new skills through the art forms of ballet, dance, opera and music.
Plans are moving ahead for a new Costume Centre which will create even stronger links between the College and the ROH by providing facilities for the making of costumes for ROH productions.

Because the Centre will house the majority of the ROH’s costumes used in their current opera and ballet repertory and also costumes from obsolete productions, students can look through the available stock with a view to refashioning items for new productions.
