We’ve agreed in principle with Calderdale Metropolitan Borough Council to undertake the asset transfer of Todmorden Community College to Todmorden Learning Centre (TLC) and Community Hub. So we’re meeting with Council representatives to agree on the lease arrangements.

We are currently working on a “joint heads of terms agreement”.  This will determine the date of transfer and the date at which TLC will be up and running – our target is Spring 2019. We’ll keep everybody up to date on the expected opening date.

In the meantime, Todmorden Community College is open and will continue to deliver all its existing services both now, and into the future as part of TLC.
