Whilst we are close to both Epsom and South/West London students also benefit from a green and leafy campus. We’ve been providing Further Education for school leavers at Nescot for more than 60 years.

FE Music

“In the future I’m going to BIMM Institute London, to study Songwriting. I’ve learnt so many skills on this course, from using software to live performance, and it’s made me a more confident musician. We’re taught by people who actually work in the industry, and it means a lot to have their experience to draw on.”
