New facilities at Bourne college

By Kelly Wickham


Staff and pupils at a college in the district are excited to have unveiled a new addition to their facilities.


Bourne Community College returned from half-term able to move into the first stage of their new building, which is on target to be completed earlier than planned.


The new building will enhance college facilities with five new classrooms – two for food technology, two for general teaching and one for science, technology, engineering, art and maths subjects.


The food technology rooms have been operational since February 26, and have been well received by students and staff.


Yvonne Watkins, headteacher at Bourne Community College, said: “Our planned new science laboratory should be in use at the end of the month and staff are looking forward to this new teaching base.


“With the new build, came the addition of a 3G pitch. This was ready for use in January and has proved very popular with our students.


“We want to extend this and are in the process of completing the community use agreement to enable this great new facility to be used by local football clubs, which will be a real boost to the local community, too.”
