Buildings and Facilities
The Academy is situated in various separate buildings across 4 sites. The best way to get a feel for the school is to come and have a tour. If none of the Leadership team are available a year 8 monitor will deliver the tour and answer questions – see the academy as they see it!
The main site is in Mead End, this is connected to our London Road (preschool) and Kitelands Road (Reception, Years 1 & 2) sites by a large playing field.
2017 saw the opening of a new building for years 3 & 4. This building is at the Mead End site. The pupils have their own playground but they do get to mix with the older year groups at luch.
