Learning Environment

Our building is 8 years old and benefits from being a PFI building. The classrooms and corridors are spacious and offer an excellent learning environment for our students. Our environment is maintained to an outstanding standard to ensure that it is able to support our students to achieve the very best that they can and improve their life chances.

There are specialist facilities for all subjects including dance studio, drama studio, arts rooms, fully equipped technology spaces, science labs and I.T. rooms. Each classroom has its own interactive whiteboard and modern seating. There is a Lecture Theatre for assemblies and school productions with seating for approximately 300. There is a well-stocked library for students to loan books and access support with both reading and homework in general.

We are extremely proud of our students and their achievements and this is obvious through the displays of students’ work across the Academy and in specialist areas such as the Design and Technology Gallery.

Our excellent sports’ reputation is reinforced by the sporting facilities including: the sports hall, gym (with rock climbing facilities), fitness suite and Multi Use Games Area (MUGA)and large open sports fields including an all weather pitch.

In addition to sport we also promote Performing Arts across the Academy and we have specialist drama rooms, dance studio and music practice rooms.

Food is prepared daily on site and is available from the Academy dining atrium which offers fresh cooked meals, jacket potatoes, warm baguettes and panini’s and is available before school, break and lunchtime.
