Cottenham Sixth Form Opens

A new £6.5million pound sixth form centre has opened at Cottenham Village College.

As well as providing a sixth form for the college, the building is also the Cambridgeshire base for the teaching of young people with hearing, speech and language needs.

The new facilities include:

  • A recording studio capable of acting as a radio station at TV broadcasting unit
  • A media centre with 170 PCs and Macs
  • A full industrial training kitchen containing £180,000 worth of equipment
  • High spec facilities for hair and beauty and construction teaching
  • Flexible, open space for use by the school and wider community.

The building has also been designed to be environmentally friendly, with triple glazing and thermal insulation to prevent heat loss.

Deputy Head Peter Marshall said: "I’m thrilled to have worked with such a brilliant team to create a truly unique facility for the benefit of students but also the wider community."

Public artwork, created by more than 400 members of the community, is on display in the new building [pictured - above right].

Amy Wormald, local Arts Development Manager, said: "The new public artwork that acts as a centre-piece to the building really represents the ethos of the College.

Each of the 400 glass tiles have been made in workshops by members of the local community – the youngest participant was 7 and the oldest 92!"
