OLYMPIC gold medallist Jessica Ennis is coming to Chesterfield to officially launch the college’s new building.

The event will take place on Friday, November 16 to open the new reception, learning centre and heart space facility.

The top decathlete will unveil a plaque marking the completion of the build and as a mark of Jessica’s success this summer the college is also renaming its sports hall after her.

Transformed over the summer, the new building provides students with a space to study, eat, socialise and receive advice on their studies and career path.

Principal Trevor Clay said: “We’re really pleased with the new building.

“In addition to our Costa Coffee it gives students a bright, modern, informal space in which they can study and socialise.

“It feels like the heart of the college now, hence its name the ‘heart space’.”

He added: “Everyone is delighted that Jessica is able to launch the facility officially for us.

“Over the years Jessica has worked hard to achieve her goals and is a fantastic role model for young people everywhere.”

The event starts at 5pm outside the new reception building on Infirmary Road.
