New Science & Study Centre

There has never been a better time for aspiring young scientists to join Solihull Sixth Form College with the construction of a new sustainably built Science and Study Centre coming soon.

Thanks to an investment of nearly £3 million from the Summit Learning Trust, of which the College is a proud member, the new building will provide the perfect environment for aspiring students with the following facilities included in the building:

  • Four fully equipped, spacious Chemistry laboratories
  • 100 PCs in a new Study Centre available to all students
  • Another IT classroom
  • Three further teaching classrooms

Applying for a September 2020 start? Don’t miss the 31 March deadline.


When construction of the new building is complete, the previous home for A level Chemistry in Blythe building will also be refurbished, creating more classrooms for other A level and BTEC courses.

The environmental impact of this building project has been considered, as this will be a modern and sustainable off-site manufactured building, built by Wakemans Limited (Project Management, Cost Consultants and Contract Administrator) and Modulek (Contractor/Manufacturer).

Construction has started and in early February 2020, Principal Martin Sullivan and some of our Chemistry students were allowed access on the construction site to see the foundations being laid.

During half-term (February 2020), the construction has stepped up with Modulek putting the first of the modules in place. These have been constructed off site and are being moved into place in sections. This cuts down the length of time it takes to construct the building significantly and thus decreases the carbon footprint of this project.
