Local History

Weston College’s free local history talk is an interesting and engaging look at Weston’s history, delivered by local councillor and historian John Crockford-Hawley.

This talk is specifically designed for adults as a fun, fascinating and informative talk.

You’ll uncover little-known historical facts and learn more about the local area. Weston-super-Mare’s was first settled in the Iron Age, and the town has a rich history to find out about.

You’ll learn about the town’s beginnings, right through its heyday as a British seaside resort, to the present day and the direction the town is heading in the future. Over five weeks you’ll discover the town’s secrets, learn about its famous residents, and get to know like minded people who also find Weston-super-Mare’s history interesting.

Note: 5 weeks, one week break for half term on Thursday 30th May.

What Our Students Say

Ed, Access to Higher Education – Health and Social Care


“I wanted to progress in my career and Weston College offered me the opportunity to do this. The College staff are very approachable and there are lots of extra-curricular activities on offer including golf, which I really enjoyed.”

Ed works as a senior carer in a privately-owned psychiatric unit. Not having good A Levels, his only route to university was through an Access to HE course.

What next? Ed is aiming to progress on to a Mental Health Nursing Degree at the University of the West of England before going into management in the psychiatric care field.

Former school: Clifton College
