Ready for the start of term - The Inspire Centre10th August 2011
The Inspire Centre will be completed in readiness for enrolment on 30th August and the new academic year. It has taken 12 months of hard work on the site to build the brand new centre for the learners of Calderdale College giving them access to the very best facilities.
The Centre has brand new sports facilities including a sports hall with fitness suite, dance studio and 3G all-weather pitch. It also incorporates new teaching rooms, sports and science laboratories and a learning resources centre.
The Inspire Centre has been designed to include environmental, low carbon technology including natural ventilation and “windcatcher” technology in the sports hall, air source heat pumps, reuse of materials on site and an energy monitoring screen in the sports atrium.
Learners will be the first to view the new facilities during enrolment week starting on 30th August and Adult Open Day on 3rd September. There will be an opening ceremony later in the term with a special guest to officially open the new centre – further details will be available shortly.
The ‘Building our Future’ project also includes refurbishment of the Percival Whitley Centre ground floor entrance, reception, café and creation of a food outlet
