The opening of The Leigh CTC, Dartford, 1990

Just over 30 years ago, The Leigh City Technology College, became one of the first CTC’s in the country. It was generously endowed by Sir Geoffrey Leigh and became a leading school in the region with a powerful ethos and curriculum rationale. The Leigh CTC went on to become The Leigh Academy and later gave birth to Leigh Academies Trust.

The official opening ceremony over 30 years ago was conducted by the Prime Minister. This collection of photos and clippings from the time recall the event.
