The Manchester College upcycled a derelict Grade 2 listed public baths building, designed by renowned architect Henry Price in 1910. This led to the creation of a multi-use facility raising community engagement and student participation in north Manchester.
The project regenerated an important landmark from the Victorian heritage of Manchester.
The facility is a beacon for the local community and was recently at the centre of a positive media campaign to counter a BBC3 television programme portraying the area in a negative light.
Since completion, student numbers have improved consistently: 2009/2010: 690 - 2010/2011: 706 - 2011/2012: 893.
The percentage of 16 to 18 year olds not in education, employment or training (NEET) has decreased since the completion of the project: 2007: 13.5% - 2011: 11.2%.
The area is improving; as exemplified by data from the Indices of Multiple Deprivation: 2007: 4th deprived ward in England - 2010: 10th deprived ward in England.
