New sports facilities and a new drama suite are to be built at St Columb’s College as part of a £2.2m make-over, the Sentinel has learned.

The Catholic grammar school is one of 51 across Northern Ireland to benefit from a School Enhancement Programme approved last month.

“The St Columb’s College, Derry project consists of new build sports facilities and conversion of existing accommodation to a Drama Suite.

“It is estimated that this project will cost £2.2m, however his cost estimate has been based on an initial scoping exercise and cannot be confirmed until professional

consultants have been appointed and design work undertaken.

“All figures may be subject to change,” the Education Minister stated.
