Students from the Farnham area can now access both strong academic provision and vocational courses delivered in improved facilities, said Farnham College Principal Clive Cooke.
Speaking at an event to celebrate plans for Farnham College's future, Mr Cooke described the new curriculum as diverse. He added that applications were up compared to this time last year and that there was a real desire to meet educational demand in the Farnham area.
Past and present governors, trustees, college staff and representatives from the Learning & Skills Council attended the event, where music was provided by Farnham based The Salieri Quartet. Sandra Robinson, Chair of Governors, opened the speeches by thanking those involved. Former Chair of Governors of Farnham College Ian Sargeant followed with a speech in which he noted that "the outlook is good".
The evening finished with tours of the College's £1.5m new facilities conducted by members of Farnham College Management Group. They include high tech new photography and IT suites, refurbished science laboratories, a modern hairdressing salon for training and new student social areas.
