These pictures show how Wellingborough's newly refurbished town centre college will look when it opens later this year.

All the building work is on schedule ahead of the campus opening to 1,000 students and staff in the Autumn.

While people walking past the Church Street site can see the progress being made externally, these images show what the inside will look like when the refurb has been completed.

The outside works to the central tower block were completed in March and the Tresham College signage was installed.

Over the Easter period, the next stage of the building works started within the internal structure of the building.

All internal walls have been reconfigured to create a much more open learning space for everyone offering light and welcoming social spacing.

The Wellingborough campus is part of Tresham College which merged with Bedford College to form The Bedford College Group in 2017.

It is hoped that redevelopment of the town centre building will extend its life for another 50 years.

During the work, they have been able to recycle 150 tonnes of materials by reusing old building rubble as the foundations for the new car park and on other sites being developed by The Bedford College Group.

A spokesman for the group said: "All building work is on schedule and we are looking forward to opening in the Autumn."

And college group CEO Ian Pryce has been tweeting about the work.

He said: "Even Covid won't stop us delivering for our community.

"Wellingborough is too big and too important not to have its own college campus and right in the centre of town too."
