Our new building

On this page we will provide updates through the year about the progression of our brand new building.

We will be lucky to have state of the art facilities for our founder year group in our purpose-built school.

On the ground floor, this will include a multi-court sports hall and fully equipped fitness centre. We will have a drama studio and performance hall as well as art & technology specialist spaces. Our music corridor will include individual practice rooms and we will offer subsidised music lessons for all pupils. Our library on the first floor will be a key resource for our pupils and in addition to this we will have suites of chromebooks and desktop computers to support pupil learning across the curriculum.

Our pupils will also have a variety of outdoor space for PE & sports use. This will include

  • MUGA (Multi-use games area) court
  • Two half Basketball Courts
  • Further games areas around the school
  • Two grass pitches, including one full sized football pitch
  • We also hope to use the 4G pitch next store (see the photo below, top right corner).

  • The carpark and access road are being tarmacked in the next couple of weeks
