Sixth form centre ‘a wonderful addition’

THE NEW multi-million pound Springfield Sixth Form Centre in Dewsbury officially opened its doors last week.

The educational centre, part of Kirklees College, is the result of an £11.1million grant from the Leeds City Region, and is part a £1billion package of government investment to accelerate growth and create jobs.

Built in partnership with Kirklees Council, and with funding from the Heritage Lottery Fund, the state-of-the-art centre off Bradford Road is one of the first of a number of projects taking place under the North Kirklees Growth Strategy.

It will offer high-quality vocational programmes for students as part of the Dewsbury Learning Quarter project.

Council leader Shabir Pandor (Lab, Batley West) said: "The new Springfield Centre is a wonderful addition to the splendid Kirklees College.

"This is an important part of our ambition to transform our economy for the benefit of everyone who lives and works here."
