Sir Robert McAlpine builders have made excellent progress with our new Academy over the summer holidays and are hoping to provide us with access to the new building as early as 15th December this year.
The groundworks for our multi-million pound new building are now complete and every day sees rapid progress as the steelwork emerges and our state-of-the-art academy takes shape.
Four of our Year 7 students have been the first to don hard hats and safety jackets to visit the construction site to see how work is progressing.
A tree has been planted at King James to mark the beginning of the multi-million pound building project that will see our academy transformed by September next year.
Over the summer, contractors have been busy helping us to achieve our first step towards the redevelopment of the King James site, with the construction of a 4G artificial turf pitch (ATP) on the site of the former all-weather pitch. This state-of-the art sports facility marks the beginning of our Academy transformation.
