Major investment in Greenhead College facilities announced

Greenhead College will be one of the first Colleges in the country to receive significant capital investment to improve its facilities as part of a major building programme announced by the Government on 5 February 2021.  

The College has been working with the Department for Education to plan significant improvements to the current estate.  This will involve replacing Biology and Chemistry facilities with brand new laboratories and classrooms.  The investment will also see increased social and dining space for students.

Principal Simon Lett said:

“Greenhead College is the top-performing provider of A Levels in the local area and one of the best Sixth Form Colleges in the country.  We are thrilled the Government has chosen our College for this investment which will ensure our students continue to receive outstanding teaching and pastoral care in modern, state-of-the art facilities.

“We are currently working with the DfE and contractors to explore the scope for further development of the site.  This would allow additional students to attend the College in future years in response to the significant increase in the 16-18 year old population in Kirklees over the next 5 years.  This is a really exciting development for the College.”
