£3.9m New Build for Churchill Academy

Churchill Academy is delighted to announce that their bid for a £3.9m new Science and Technology block has been successful.

Following on from the successful build of their new £1.3m IT and Business centre, the phased approach to fully decommission one of the original 1950s buildings will see students benefiting from first class facilities to match the outstanding education, by the end of 2018.

The new build will include 12 Science Laboratories and two Food Technology classrooms and will provide over 14,000m2 of space.

"We are delighted to receive this funding in our Diamond Jubilee year. Our main building has served us well for sixty years, but the students of 2017 deserve better than to receive their education in a building designed and built for the students of 1957. I'm delighted that our students and staff will enjoy brand new state-of-the art facilities in which to work and learn for many years to come.” Chris Hildrew, Head Teacher at Churchill Academy.

Both bids have been made through the governments Condition Improvement Fund—the only funding source available to the school as an Academy.
