As part of our commitment to provide services for the community, we provide a range of office spaces with preference given to charity and ‘not for profit’ organisations. These groups contribute to the vibrant atmosphere and eclectic cultural mix at the Old Town Hall.

Wac Arts College
Wac Arts College provides alternative education for 14-19 year olds through a creative arts and media curriculum. The school consolidates over thirty years’ experience of using arts and media education to turn disengaged young peoples’ lives around.
Our ethos is founded on a number of principles that are embedded through our work in non-statutory arts and media education. These are that excellence and engagement through the arts:
• unlocks individual talents;
• fosters aspiration and achievement;
• empowers young people to acknowledge and celebrate their heritage;
• develops transferable skills for employability including communication, problem solving, team work, entrepreneurship and leadership.
We believe passionately that learning can – and should be – enjoyable. A creative curriculum puts pleasure back into learning, particularly if you have been alienated from or excluded by ‘traditional’ and ‘mainstream’ statutory education.
Avoiding and resisting learning in school can often be signs of imagination and creativity. Many young people in alternative education are especially well suited for a career in the creative industries.
Our curriculum ensures that young people are able to work towards meaningful accreditation and qualifications. This will then enable them to access the creative industries and other post-19 options in accordance with their aspirations and dreams.
