Stoke Sixth Form College – Stoke – On – Trent
Work has now completed on Stoke – On – Trent college’s £2 million – Three Storey Block extension so it can cater for a growing number of students and courses. It comes just in time as the college is preparing to celebrate its 50 anniversary in 2020.
Richardsons were awarded the furniture contract to furnish the new block which includes a dedicated suite for delivering T-levels, the Government’s brand new technical qualifications which are being billed as an alternative to A-levels.
Stoke-on-Trent Sixth Form College is one of the first in the country to offer these courses and it will initially teach a T-level in digital production, design and development. There will be a digital workshop and office space where students can pitch their software ideas.
“The City of Stoke on Trent Sixth Form College is a medium sized sixth form college located in the University Quarter of Stoke on Trent. The service provided by Richardson’s has been excellent and we have now used them for several projects across the campus. Our advisor has taken the time to understand our desired outcomes from the different projects undertaken, and provided solutions from across the market that best meet these objectives. The design feature of the extension project are coherent through the building, reference the original, and successfully create separate zones for the social study spaces, Higher Education Students and corporate suite. Richardson’s patient and responsive service – from design, through revisions, manufacture, installation to after-care – has really supported college leaders to exceed project objectives with the minimum time, disruption and stress. I am pleased to highly recommend this service to you and would happily act as a reference site.”
