The new education space, which will be located on Duke Street in the city centre, willl open in September and offer 15 students aged 16 and over the chance to study for a BTEC Level 3 in Fashion and Design. It is being funded by the nearby Broadgreen International School.

The course syllabus will focus heavily on business, buying and online fashion retailing.

The school will hold interviews for its first round of students throughout July.
