This new academy provides places for around 740 students, aged 11 to 18 years old. It is designed around a central hub featuring a circular reception atrium from which three wings extend.

Energy efficiency and environmental impact were key aspects of the build programme, reflected in the M&E remit which includes under-floor heating, natural ventilation via auto operable windows with temperature sensors, fully controlled intelligent lighting systems and ground source heat pump technology. The academy also benefits from roof mounted Photovoltaic array totalling 100m².
