Presentation College has been approved funding for an extension that includes 12 new classrooms, two new pastoral offices, a new special education (SET) room, a multimedia room, a music room, a design and communications graphics (DCG) room, a construction studies room and technology room/prep area, as well as two new science labs and a prep area, two project stores, a two-classroom SEN base and new staff room.
