Extended New Building Project

College may be out for the Summer but the KGV campus remains buzzing with activity since securing planning permission to extend the new Creative Arts building project.  The plans where unanimously approved by the Committee at the Sefton Planning meeting on Wednesday 16th July, following confirmation of additional funding for the project in April.

The new extended building will replace all the temporary accommodation on the site with new purpose built facilities.  The building will become the home of the Creative Arts subjects including Art & Design, Drama & Theatre, Media and Film, Music and Music Technology.  In addition to this, the extended building will now accommodate a number of other A Level subjects to be confirmed.

Assistant Principal Jan Regan said, ‘We are absolutely thrilled to have received further funding from the Building Condition Improvement Fund (BCIF) which has enabled us to double the size of the original project.  It will make a tremendous difference to our College site and provide excellent state of the art facilities for our students and staff.   We have been working very hard for several years to improve our accommodation and have managed to refurbish our Learning Centre, Laboratories, Canteen, Toilets and Classroom facilities in the main building, but this project will significantly enhance our premises’

The new building is due for completion in Spring 2015 therefore students enrolling this year will benefit from the new facilities.

The College enrolment for 2014/15 is on Thursday 21st August 2014 and there are still places available on some courses for late applications.  All enquiries should be made directly to the College.
