Christ's Hospital Terrace is a Grade 2 listed building located in close proximity to Lincoln Cathedral and Lincoln Castle.

What Our Students Say
“During my time on the course, we acquired many vocational and practical skills, finding opportunities in assignments to be able to practice skills we had learnt in real world environments and simulated situations. By far the most enjoyable aspect of the course was the small class sizes, meaning we all bonded and could rely on each other to help when it was needed. During this course I was able to start work as a wedding photographer, shooting as a second shooter for a while and then eventually taking on weddings on my own with real word clients.”
