Learning enterprise Chimes, will also be relocating to Highbury Campus. In 2017, the student run fine dining restaurant relaunched as a pop-up catering enterprise, offering top quality special event catering.
Rob Strachen, Sector Lead for Culinary Arts added: “The expectations of employers and the catering industry as a whole has changed in the past few years. There has been a definite shift in the industry, from traditional fine dining restaurants to a boom in street food retailers, pop-up restaurants and delivery-focused enterprises. Chimes will remain an essential part of the way we deliver our culinary arts courses, preparing our student for the modern catering environment.”
As a result, the sale of the former Highbury City of Portsmouth Centre (HCPC) to the University of Portsmouth has been agreed.
Principal of Highbury College Stella Mbubaegbu CBE said: “After many happy years and thousands of successful students we are delighted that HCPC will continue to be used as an educational facility.”
