New facilities have been opened at Rotherham College’s campus in Dinnington as part of a £18 million facelift.

Sir Kevin Barron, MP for Rother Valley, cut the ribbon in the Heartspace area, to officially open the new and upgraded facilities.

The transformation of the campus is the latest stage in the college’s £18million four-year programme to provide students with the best possible learning facilities.

As well as the Heartspace social and events area, the new facilities include upgrades to the cutting-edge games and animation department, IT facilities, the animal management department and new facilities for foundation students, who will run social enterprise activities within and from the campus.

Gill Alton, principal and chief executive of Rotherham College, said: “This is a really important milestone for us to celebrate. We believe our students have the absolute right to learn in the best possible facilities that the college can provide. This investment is testament to that commitment.”
