Life in AC.

While the academics are an important part of every student's life there is an extensive and challenging activities programme. The College has official responsibility for safety of life along 15 miles of Bristol Channel coastline. There is a RNLI Inshore Life Boat and HM Coastguard stations operated by the students. The College has been credited with over 180 lives since 1962. Equally important is the social service. Students visit eldery people, work with physically and mentally handicapped children. There is also an operating Marine Environmental Unit, College Farm and Arts Centre.

As well as providing the service the student can participate in a wide range of recreational activities, ranging from sailing to music lessons.
