How do I enter the new building at 45 Mann Street? 

Pedestrian access to 45 Mann Street is either via the main gate on Mann Street, and up the stairs through the front entrance or via the accessible driveway on Georgiana Terrace and through the rear entrance. Both entrances lead to our new foyer and reception area. 

Where can I park?

There is street parking on Georgiana Terrace and Mann Street. Please do not use the upper car park on Georgiana Terrace – this is reserved for CCCon staff. 

Is there accessible parking?

There is one accessible parking space accessed via Georgiana Terrace, which can be used as a pick-up/drop off area for people for accessibility purposes. 

Are there toilets on-site?

Yes, we have new male, female and accessible toilet facilities for students, parents and carers. These are accessible from the reception area.

Is there a waiting area for parents, carers and children?

Parents, carers, siblings and students are welcome to sit in our covered courtyard area, the foyer – complete with a study bench – or communal areas while waiting. Please be mindful to keep noise levels to a minimum and supervise small children at all times while waiting, as lessons will be going on in other rooms and Con staff are working in the offices.
