March 2007

(NOTE: This is an archived press release.)

Governors of Writtle College have given the green light to proceed with the sale of Sturgeon's House - the residence of former Principal, Mike Alder.

The money raised from the sale of the property, which is located in Cow Watering Lane, Writtle, will be re-invested in modernising campus facilities, offering more classrooms and student facing services within the main building. The aim to modernise the current facilities comes at a time when the College is undergoing a restructure and will enhance Professor Butcher’s aim to drive the College into the future.

Professor Butcher said: “With this money we will be able to create better facilities in order to meet the needs of students and the strategic aims of the government.”
