New Weston College Academy building complete – home of NSETC

Junction 21 Post DateTuesday, August 16, 2016

The new Weston College Academy building which will be the home of the North Somerset Enterprise and Technology College (NSETC) in Weston-super-Mare’s Junction 21 Enterprise Area has been completed on schedule.

BAM Construction Ltd has completed work on the £12million, three-storey, campus which will become home to NSETC in September.

The 6,400sqm building includes a purpose-built science floor, complete with super-labs and a terrace where students can conduct outdoor experiments. It also has technology and enterprise spaces, an all-weather sports pitch, a canteen, a library and a lecture theatre.

NSETC is a specialist science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) college which is part of the Inspirational Futures Trust, a multi-academy trust sponsored by the Weston College Group.

The school combines excellent teaching with superb facilities and is creating a talent pool which will directly meet employers’ needs.

The Weston College Academy building and campus, in the heart of Weston’s Junction 21 Enterprise Area, can accommodate 700 students and means NSETC will be well-placed to continue building links with both local and national businesses.NSETC-building-weston-super-mare-1024x683

“This campus is the first of its kind to be built within an Enterprise Zone and we are very much looking forward to seeing it officially open in September, ready to prepare some of the brightest young people in the South West for 21st century working.”  Visit the Weston College page on the In North Somerset website for more information.
