We have a bumper buildings update for you today with a huge number of photos added to the gallery.

On site we can see a huge amount of progress as we move towards the very final phase. On the outside we see the end of the building completed and rendered. We can see all windows now in place and the outside is nearly finished at this point with just a small area to complete near the canteen. Also on the exterior we can see the enormous multi-use-games area ready for its final surface, paths being completed and fencing has begun around the Academy.

Inside there is even greater improvement, as well as being able to see finished classrooms, the main reception desk has been added, the fixed furniture is in, doors are now added throughout, noticeboards have been put up in classrooms and we can see the kitchen taking shape. Power, water and gas is now active throughout the building as the main plant is completed. Inspectors are starting to come onsite to commission areas as ready in stages.

The biggest addition is the fixed seating in the hall which was just being completed as we went round and looks spectacular. The next few weeks will be busy as the builders complete areas ready for cleaning and start to move on site and we remain confident of starting on time.
