A campus offering creative education for neurodivergent students is opening at Birmingham’s Aston Hall.
The new facility will see students of Pinc College undertake classes in art, digital art and complementary studies at the Grade I listed 17th century mansion, which is operated by Birmingham Museums Trust.
As part of the new partnership, Birmingham Museums will offer the students access to arts opportunities across the trust’s nine museum and heritage sites.
The Aston Hall campus marks Pinc College’s first in the West Midlands and will open officially in September. Prospective students are being invited to attend open days at the facility on 19 and 20 May.
Birmingham Museums’ Historic Properties Museum Manager Kimberley Biddle said the trust is looking forward to students exploring the richness of the building as part of their creative learning.
“I’ve been lucky enough to see first-hand the work of team Pinc and the way that focussed art engagement can unleash unbounded creativity in their students.”
