Redevelopment program[edit]

In June 2011, the College completed a 10-year redevelopment programme, which involved construction of new buildings. Following the opening of the Sixth Form Academy in 2004 and the Renaissance Building in 2006, the third building, aptly named the Jubilee Building, was opened in the college's 25th year and welcomed its first students in January 2010. The building programme drew to a close with the completion of a new Construction and Engineering Building and an extension to the existing Renaissance Building to provide additional media facilities, including a new state-of-the-art studio. The latter two buildings opened in autumn 2010, with landscaping and grounds work completed the following summer.
