A ceremony marked the opening of the refurbished Croydon Metropolitan College.

Originally opened as Croydon Tutorial Centre (CTC) in 2000, the centre was originally set up as an evening and weekend tuition centre to help students struggling with difficult topics at school.

The centre in South Croydon also provided extra coaching for students before internal and external exams.

In 2005, the CTC became the Croydon Metropolitan College (CMC) and after an expansion, increased the number of students.

The CMC proceeded to run full-time and evening classes as well as part time classes at weekends.

The opening event was attended by former Croydon Mayor Cllr Graham Bass, as well as MP Gavin Barwell and Councillors Mike Selva, Cllr Vidhi Mohan.

Councillors from Kingston and Harrow also attended the launch on May 19.

The school has undergone a complete refurbishment which includes the building of a new state of the art lecture hall and three lecture rooms.

CMC affiliated with London Metropolitan University and University Campus Suffolk.

The new facilities will enable university students to study their degree courses at CMC.
