The Cobblers Study Centre has had a makeover, and been given a new name to celebrate its 10th anniversary.

The study centre, which is situated beside the car park at the south stand end of Sixfields, has undergone a major makeover thanks to a community partnership between Travis Perkins PDH, Harvey Reeves Road in Northampton, Northampton Benchmarx, GP Labs, Tesco, Mereway and also Mick George.

Cobblers skipper Marc Richards, central defender Gaby Zakuani and midfielder Shaun McWilliams were at Sixfields for the reopening on Thursday afternoon.

The refit has included brand new facilities in the two fully equipped classrooms, and has seen the kitchen completely refitted by Northampton Benchmarx.

The Study Centre, which is being rebranded as the Northampton Town Education Centre, Sixfields campus ahead of the opening of a St Crispins campus, is a fully working, integrated education resource managed by Jean Limpitlaw.

It offers local students and pupils the chance to learn at Sixfields as part of an exciting and dynamic partnership between Northamptonshire County Council and Northampton Town Football Club.

The Centre works in close partnership with local schools and education providers to raise educational standards across Northamptonshire through outreach and alternative provision programmes.
