At long last work has begun on the extension to The Academy. This project is expected to be completed by September 2019 and involves building six new classrooms and a new stairwell. This will add much needed teaching and circulation space.
There will be periods of disruption, but our aim is to minimise the impact on teaching and learning. We will monitor the situation on a daily basis and make provision as appropriate. There is likely to be noise and some vibration felt in The Academy. This is all part of the normal building process.
Students and parents should be aware that Health and Safety is of paramount importance and is our first priority. We would ask parents/carers to reiterate to their children the importance of following instructions given by staff relating to the building work. Certain areas of The Academy will not be accessible and it is important that students understand this and follow all guidance.
We all look forward to our improved accommodation. Merry Christmas and a healthy New Year!
