A stunning tile mural has been unveiled at Northampton College’s Daventry campus to mark the building’s first birthday.
The display was revealed as part of an Open Event held at the campus on Tuesday, November 21, designed to help prospective students find out more about college life and the courses available to them.
Principal Pat Brennan-Barrett said: “This mural is a true collaboration of creativity, made up of hundreds of individually designed tiles, and is a fitting way to celebrate the first birthday of our state-of-the-art new campus.
“It’s a brilliant piece of work – made by students, staff, local businesses and members of the community.
“We are hugely grateful to everyone who has played their part and contributed not only to the mural but have also made the last 12 months so special for all of us at Daventry.”
Latest statistics have revealed that 95 per cent of students at the new Daventry campus pass their qualifications, with 90 per cent going on to further study or employment. The college is working closely with local employers in the Daventry area to ensure students are ‘workplace-ready’ when they leave the classroom.
Northampton College’s multi-million-pound Daventry Campus, in Badby Road West, is home to industry-standard workshops for motor vehicle engineering, a stylish library, contemporary hairdressing and beauty therapy salons, ICT and Mac suites, teaching space for healthcare and childcare plus dedicated provision for students with learning difficulties and disabilities.
