What Next For Wesley College?

Wesley College - the Methodist Theological College at the top of Henbury Road in Westbury on Trym - is likely to be turned into a new housing development, according to a former student.

The campus ceased operating last year and is now no longer offering courses. The accommodation blocks on campus, however, remain occupied by a mixed group of former students who have entered into arrangements with the college authorities to remain on site while the future of the campus is resolved. The majority of the current occupants are, apparently, from South Korea. Wesley College was not only the longest-standing Methodist training college in Britain, it also attracted students for is undergraduate and postgraduate courses from around the world. 

Speculation is that the site may be sold to a property developer and permission sought to convert the current main building into private apartments, with additional properties built on the grounds.
