Training in the South West

The South West is famously known for its beautiful countryside, landmarks, apple cider and cheese!

Training in the South West not only allows trainees to train  in a calm, picturesque environment, it also offers opportunities to get involved in local life and events.  

Clarks Village, hugely popular outlet shopping centre

less than a mile from the MSC training centre

The MSC is based in Street and is less than a mile from the outlet shopping centre Clarks Village and the  home of the world famous brand Clarks Shoes.  We work with schools based in the historic cities Bath and Wells. We also work with schools in the surrounding beautiful counties, Dorset and Wiltshire.  

One of the most famous highlights Somerset has to offer is Glastonbury Festival, which takes place less than half an hour from the main MSC office. Somerset provides a wonderful setting to train live in.

 The MSC office is based at Crispin School, Street. Crispin School is an academy providing high quality education for students aged 11-16 from Street and the surrounding area. It is a very popular school which is highly regarded for its academic achievement, wider opportunities and the individual care it offers to young people. 

Training is held weekly at Crispin School. Parking is available in the Strode College car park adjacent to the School. The MSC has been based at the school since 2005. The Professional training suite can be found on the ground floor of G-Block, along with the MSC office.
