Take a look at our new 6th Form Academy Hub!
Plans for NPTC Group of Colleges’ multimillion-pound face lift have been released providing first class modern facilities for students and staff.
The A/B block of Neath Campus on Dwr-y-Felin Road, which currently houses the maths and science departments, will be completely upgraded. The three-storey refurbishment project will include a new glazed extension and recladding of the existing building.
The interior will see a complete transformation with a new open plan sixth form hub where students and staff can work or relax. The ultra-modern facility will have touchscreen capability, free Wi-Fi and charging points as well as a Starbucks Coffee shop, catering facilities, retail area and a lift to allow access to the upper floors.
The sustainable refurbishment will improve energy efficiency too on the Neath Campus in line with the College’s commitment to improving energy use and the reduction of CO2 emissions.
Don’t take our word for it – take a look for yourself. We have a number of virtual tours HERE to see how the new development will look.
