A new build for New College

[17/02/2015 | No comment]

New College
On my most recent trip to New College in New Parks, I got to see how Labour’s Building Schools for the Future programme has transformed the school.

£8.4million has been invested in new classrooms, a sports block, performing arts centre and sixth form block. The programme is much more than just bricks and mortar and the students I met told me that these new state of the art facilities have made a huge difference to their learning.

I also got to congratulate a group of students for the work they’d done to raise funds for the Leicester Royal Infirmary’s Our Space Appeal, which supports the Children’s Cancer Ward.

New College is within the top 10% of schools nationwide for outstanding continuous improvement and I’ll always support their work to boost aspiration and attainment for their 900 students.
