A formal handover of keys will take place at 11am Friday 17 December as the county council transfers occupancy to Carlisle College of the former NCTC site in Harraby.
The ground floor of the Edgehill Road premises will be taken over by Carlisle College while work continues on its campus redevelopment.
The College is expected to use the site for approximately a year.
Richard Rose Central Academy will vacate the Harraby site on Friday to move into its £31 million new build at Lismore Place, which has been procured by Cumbria County Council.
The deal will allow Cumbria County Council, as part of its ‘Harraby Together We Can’ project, to continue to explore with the local community the best future long term use of the site.
During the College’s occupation, the current facilities, used by the community, will remain accessible to the public. These include the theatre, library, sports hall and playing fields.
Harraby County Councillor Cyril Weber said:
"There has been a tradition of learning for many many years on this site and we are delighted to be able to continue this with our colleagues at Carlisle College.
Moira Tattersall, Principal of Carlisle College, said:
"We are looking forward to the move and enjoying a fruitful relationship with the local community."
Those attending Friday's handover include Harraby County Councillor Cyril Weber, Cumbria County Council deputy leader Stewart Young, Carlisle College Assistant Principal Steve Salkeld and members of the 'Harraby Together We Can' project.
Media are welcome.
Meet at main reception.
