New school fencing will be unveiled in the north-east this week when a sixth form college opens for children looking at further education.

East Durham College, situated in Peterlee, is expected to be unveiled ahead beginning to take in pupils in September ahead of the new school year.

The establishment will offer around 20 different A-levels and in partnership with other secondary schools local to the area, the Hartlepool Mail reports.

Paul Wheatcroft, the director-designate of the college, told the news provider that the site will provide an excellent route into university for those looking to progress further.

"We have consulted closely with the Russell Group who represent 20 of the UK's leading universities including Oxford, Cambridge, Manchester and Newcastle," he explained.

"We've grouped together certain A-level subjects to guide students down particular routes – we call them Professional Pathways – which lead to one of seven broad career paths after their time at university."
