New college set for Daventry

APPROVAL has been granted for a new university technical college (UTC) to be opened in Daventry.

UTCs are aimed at giving students aged 14 to 19 the opportunity to take up full-time technically orientated courses.

Daventry is one of just 13 places in the country selected for the new education concept.

It’s hoped the college will be open off Ashby Road by 2013 and cater for up to 600 pupils.
