New Academy Development

It’s important to us that the Academy is a place where students want to come to learn. Our new building (opened February 2017) is designed to inspire learning, encourage co-operation and nurture ambition.

Each faculty will have dedicated areas and the central hall with its performance stage will allow all Academy students and staff to meet together. Co-curricular skills will be encouraged with our three-court sports hall, drama and dance studios. Outside, we have a running track, football pitch, rugby pitch, and a MUGA with netball and tennis courts. Plans are currently being discussed with Sports England on all weather cricket wickets as well as a grass cricket pitch.

In addition, we have an extensive outdoor space, including 15 acres of woodland. We are currently planning on how to use this precious green land to enhance students and staff’s time at the Academy.
