Mayor opens Design Hub
The Mayor of Southampton, Councillor Peter Baillie, officially opened a new state-of-the art Design Hub at Regents Park Community College on Tuesday 14th January.
The new hub has been opened following a 23-week refurbishment of the school’s old Design and Technology block that has been funded by Southampton City Council. It includes new facilities and has been designed to enable Design and Technology to be taught to the highest standard, with pupils across all year groups able to benefit from cutting-edge tools including a 3D printer and improved resources such as a dedicated food technology room.
The project cost around £1.2 million and is part of a wider programme of improvements to Regents Park Community College funded by Southampton City Council.
The Mayor said: “It’s a great pleasure to open this impressive facility and usher in an exciting new chapter for students and staff at Regents Park Community College. The new design hub provides an excellent example of how Southampton City Council is working with partners to deliver best-in-class education facilities and I hope it will be well used for many years to come.”
