After planning permission was granted by Manchester City Council to expand into the vacant retail unit next door to the college, work has now started on this major project.
The work comprises a ground floor and basement expansion that almost doubles the size of the current capacity. This will create extra office and administration space on the ground floor and a new well-equipped study centre; Head of Year office and toilet facilities in the basement. There will also be some minor alterations made on the first floor to create extra classroom space.
It is a really exciting project, which should be completed in time for the new academic year starting in September 2017.
