Located conveniently in the heart of Birmingham’s Jewellery Quarter, the School was founded in 1890. It is the largest in Europe, with excellent facilities and expertise to develop a career in the sector.

A blend of traditional historic and cutting-edge contemporary, The Vittoria Street building’s historical facade conceals a contemporary environment including workshops, a specialist library, an atrium gallery and exhibition space. The extensive refurbishment resulted in awards from the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) and the Civic Trust.

The venue is well located for anyone wanting to explore the Jewellery Quarter and discover its history.
