The City Academy
A New City Academy for 1,250 pupils including sixth form and provision for 36 Special Educational Needs students. The school offers specialisms in sports and arts and provides a wide range of sports and leisure facilities for the local community, including a new indoor 40 x 60 metre sports hall.
The design concept of six specialised 'villages' breaks down the City Academy into more cohesive and manageable communities, promoting a stronger sense of belonging, responsibility and accountability among students, teachers and parents.
The team developed an exciting curriculum plan and design to create a stimulating and progressive learning environment for the 'school' and 'community', seen as a benchmark scheme within the Academy programme.
