A study centre which had been facing closure due to budget cuts has had its future secured by Silverstone Circuit.

The home of the F1 British Grand Prix has moved to ensure that the study centre's work can continue.

The Centre - developed in conjunction with Northamptonshire County Council and the Department for Children, Schools and Families (DfES) in 2007 – had been faced with closure following removal of public sector funding.

The centre provides educational support for primary and secondary school children.
