Major improvement scheme - Sidmouth College

Posted: 19/01/2007 16:12:02

WORK is starting on a 635,000 project to improve the teaching accommodation at Sidmouth College.

Two mobile classrooms will also be removed from the campus.

The development, which is on two floors, will provide a spacious new textiles room and a flexible teaching area.

It will also provide disabled access to the sixth form and the drama studio.

The project is being funded through the college's status as a specialist technology college, its own capital reserves and money from Devon County Council.

College principal David Birch said: "This is an excellent example of creatively using different sources of funding to produce a very worthwhile scheme.

"The textiles room has been in a cramped mobile classroom and any move to permanent accommodation is always very welcome.

"There will also be flexible accommodation for 14-19 students, which is particularly useful with the development of vocational courses."

Work will start on site on within the next few weeks and is scheduled to take eight months.

Local county councillor Stuart Hughes said:"This is excellent news, showing the college is spending its money wisely in improving facilities to give the students the opportunity of 21st Century teaching facilities."
