Project Vision
To create a world class heritage centre in the College Chapel that celebrates the history and development of the College campus from the Roman and Anglo-Saxon periods, through the Second World War and from 1951 when Wymondham College was established.
 
Purpose
To celebrate the heritage of the campus from the discovery of the Anglo-Saxon Morley Hoard, the Roman settlement, 1920s Golf Course, 231st USAAF Hospital, Teacher Training College and the establishment of Wymondham College.
 
To create a special focus on the 231st USAAF Hospital (1941 – 1945) and the founding of Wymondham College in 1951; with information, photographic displays and physical recreations of the USAF Executive Officers office (Lt Col Warriner - desk, chair, uniform etc) and the first College dormitory from 1951 (metal framed bunk bed, locker, school uniform etc).
 
The Heritage centre will be used as a teaching resource to inspire our students and act as a focal point for visits and events with alumni.
 
Timeline
For the opening to coincide with the 70th anniversary of Wymondham College in 2021.
