The £9.3 million contract to build the second University Technical College in Sheffield has been awarded.

BAM Construction is to build the college on the Olympic Legacy Park in Attercliffe - the site of the former Don Valley Stadium, which was demolished in November 2013.

The new college will specialise in human sciences and computing and is due to open in September 2016 for students aged between 14 and 19.

The Sheffield College, Sheffield Hallam University and Sheffield Chamber of Commerce and Industry are involved in the project.

Construction work is due to begin in October.

Andrew Cropley, from The Sheffield College, said: “We are very pleased to be working with BAM to deliver an extraordinary school for 14 to 19-year-olds.

“The design makes the very best of the site and will provide an incredible learning environment for our students, with remarkable neighbours.”

For more information about the new college an event is to be held at the English Institute of Sport, Coleridge Road, Attercliffe, on Tuesday July 14 from 5.30pm to 7.00pm.
