A NEW post-16 education centre for children with special educational needs in the town is opening its doors on Monday.

Woolston sixth form college is the first phase in the £8m Woolston Learning Village development and cater for young people aged 16 and above.

Around 30 students will be the first through the doors before they are joined by all remaining pupils from Fox Wood and Green Lane Community Special Schools when the new facilities for both schools open in September 2014.

Paul King, head teacher at Green Lane Special School, said: “We now have a superb educational facility that will meet the needs of some of our most vulnerable young people.

“We are particularly excited that this is a joint project with Fox Wood School and together we want to make our sixth form college the best in the country.”
