We are delighted to share coverage of the official opening of the Hirst Building at Greenhead College Huddersfield, which has been named after the MBU’s Director - Professor Judy Hirst, who is a former Greenhead College student.

The Hirst Building replaces the College’s 1960s Science block with vibrant, modern classrooms and laboratories for the teaching of A Levels in Biology, Chemistry, Medical Science, Government & Politics and Psychology. It also contains study and social space for all students.

HRH The Duke of Gloucester officially opened the building on Tuesday, 23 April, when he and Judy unveiled the commemorative plaque and joined staff, students and guests for a celebration of this tremendous milestone for the College.

Further coverage is available on the Greenhead College website:

Many congratulations Judy!
