The college has a plan to build a 3G pitch; it is still a work in progress and are multiple stages closer to the plans being finalised. The new pitch will be built over the current first team football pitch.


The investment into the college site will be just shy of 1 million pounds, the pitch will be floodlit, fenced and will have a spectator area inside the fenced perimeter giving people a space to watch games. If all goes accordingly and we progress as planned the first phase of work will begin around September/October next year. The new 3G pitch will follow the same model as for example, Baysgarth School and many others in the local area.


This is not only beneficial to the college and its pupils but the wider community Local sports teams will be able to rent the facility, further adding to the benefits of the community and to the pupils of the college.


Principal Leon Riley said “The College continues to substantially invest in facilities for its learners. This exciting new development will enable the next generation of sports people to have access to training and playing facilities, further nurturing and developing their talent.”


There is also another bid in progress to improve the existing grass pitches with new equipment making the already good pitches even better. The bid includes new equipment, seeding and extra machinery to maintain the pitches and keep a nice flat playing surface perfect to play football and other sports on.


A good, well maintained, smooth playing surface is vital for a good experience while training and playing sports which both the 3G pitch and improved grass pitches would provide.
