Watch an overview of the transformation below:

The next phase of the works are due to complete by the middle of October, by which time the Centre will boast a brand new ground floor featuring new spaces such as an integrated exhibitions, events and reception space, and a flexible flagship studio facing onto the street.

North Kensington to celebrate 150 years of education on Wornington Road

The North Kensington Centre for Skills – which was refurbished and relaunched last year – will this year celebrate the fact that education has been delivered on the Wornington Road site since 1873.

This even pre-dates the founding of Morley College in the 1880s. (Read more about Morley’s history at this Wikipedia article.)
