The College was successful in securing approval from the Skills Funding Agency to transform the College's two sites in Northampton, at a cost of £85 million. The new buildings now provide a modern, fit for purpose learning environment for the local community that will help maximise participation and achievement and contribute to the necessary skills development in the town and Northamptonshire. The Booth Lane site was officially opened on the 6th July 2011 by Minister John Hayes MP.
