WE'VE been digging through our archives to find some old pictures from Colchester Institute.

Thousands of students have passed through the vocational college in its 50 years in Colchester, studying everything from art and design to catering, fashion, engineering, music and construction.

Have a flick through to see if you can spot any familiar faces.
