STUDENT numbers are set to increase in North Kensington under ambitious plans to improve provision at Kensington and Chelsea College.
“We’re firmly committed to North Kensington,” says the college’s recently-appointed Interim Principal Michele Sutton CBE.
“This means not just maintaining our presence in the borough but going much further by ensuring we can accommodate growing numbers of students in the modern facilities they deserve.
“We look forward to sharing our plans for North Kensington as they develop and will be working with the community, including potential students, businesses and the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea.”
The college has listened very carefully to its existing students and is considering a range of options at locations in North Kensington.
The priorities to include:
- Greatly improved access for people with disabilities
- Modern classroom and teaching facilities
- Improved communal areas for students to meet and work
- Greater environmental efficiency
Meanwhile the campus will remain open for business at Wornington Road ensuring there will be continuity of provision until new facilities are ready.
