It boasts 13 teaching rooms, two ICT suites, tutorial rooms and a language laboratory, and was described by the Roman Catholic archbishop a “living building” inside which staff and pupils would “flourish as cornerstones in God’s eyes”.

He described the college as a “wonderful place of learning whose roots spread far beyond the diocese of Birmingham”.

The archbishop joined pupils in a formal ribbon cutting ceremony before blessing the building and officially unveiling ‘The Limes’ plaque assisted by college head boy Simon Fisher and head girl Maddie Wigmore-Sykes.
