Darlington MP marks start of £1m Carmel College development
Darlington MP Peter Gibson has officially marked the start of a £1m project to create a new sixth form centre at the town’s Carmel College.
The work, which is being carried out by Wharton Construction, represents one of the final pieces in the redevelopment of The Headlands site.
Mr Gibson, who performed the groundbreaking ceremony, said: “I’m extremely honoured to be asked by Carmel College to mark the official start of this exciting project.
“It represents a significant investment in the future of its students and will be a fine addition to its already first-rate facilities.”
Predominantly used by sixth form students for self-directed studies, as well as for fitness and sports, the building will feature a viewing gallery that looks down onto the sports hall.
