This new state of the art multi-media facility at Durham Sixth form Centre was officially handed over in September 2019. Working closely with Durham County Council’s Direct Services to a very tight programme; the project was completed on time and within budget.
The expansion for the College provides a new free-standing modern building which includes a TV studio with editing and sound suite, multi-media and IT teaching spaces together with a student social space, café, teacher training hub, conference facility and staff administration and storage areas with extensive modifications to the existing car parking arrangements.
The design provides an inspirational learning environment within a sustainable and robust building, with the provision of flexible and adaptable spaces which can meet the changing educational needs of a thriving and highly successful sixth form.
Head teacher, Ms Beveridge said: “The new build will be a specialist media and computing suite which will house the most up to date industry standard equipment. Building on our outstanding reputation and recent judgement from Ofsted, this development will enable us to continue to offer a broad range of courses”
