Notification of Capital Funding

We are delighted to announce that we have been awarded funding as part of the Government’s Academy Capital Maintenance Funding Programme.  We have been allocated funding for one of the two capital bids that we submitted and - subject to planning permission - we hope to begin work in July.

The funding will allow us to create a new art block; refurbish our sixth form provision and increase the number of music practice rooms available to our students; as well as enhancing our design and technology provision.

As we anticipated, the Funding Programme was heavily oversubscribed and the number of bids and total amount of money sought by academies across the country significantly outweighed the available funds.

When we made the initial announcement of our plans in January, we stated that developments were dependent upon receipt of both funding and also planning permission and the outcome of the planning application is expected at the beginning of May.

Further updates will be posted in due course.
