Morgan Sindall hands over the keys to new classrooms at Kingston Maurward College

Kingston Maurward principal Clare Davison has been handed the keys to the brand new teaching block – the Sticklefords Building.

The new facility will be home to the Diploma in Environmental and Land-based Studies which is aimed at young people aged between 14 and 19.
 
It’s one of a series of projects Morgan Sindall has completed at the college, including the re-vamped Learning and Resources Centre in 2007 which features an environmentally-friendly sedum roof.

Paul Gale, Morgan Sindall area director says: “We’re thrilled to have handed over the building to the college and are pleased to have seen such a positive reaction from staff and students.  The college provides a fantastic learning environment for local students and we’re pleased to have helped shape its development over the last few years.”

The Diploma in Environmental and Land-based Studies provides young people with practical skills, as well as more academic skills in English, maths and ICT. 
 
College principal Clare Davison says: “This new centre is a revolutionary change to our teaching here and will create a modern, high quality specialised learning environment.  Many teenagers in rural areas similar to ours don’t have the learning choices that this centre will give them and move away. This facility will increase the number of students coming to Kingston Maurward College and we are very pleased that Morgan Sindall worked so well in partnership with us to enable that to happen.”
