The centre, designed by the school's pupils, has been developed with the support of ScottishPower and Thomson NETg. Courses will centre on growing work-based skills, while retaining an academic focus. The creation of the centre has helped New Heys become the first school in Liverpool to gain Business & Enterprise College status as outlined in the Government's Excellence in Schools White Paper.
