Academy Announces Building Plans

Principal Ruth Johnson - "Thrilled"

A  local Wiltshire resident, Jane Locksmith from Cube design has been named as the lead architect for Sarum Academy's  £15. 5 million building, working with Sir Robert McAlpine who have been announced today as the preferred bidder for the project.

The new Academy which will accommodate six form entry will bring state of the art educational facilities to the west of Salisbury in less than two years’ time with building due to  commence early in 2012 and complete by September 2013.

Principal Ruth Johnson commented that the "The whole Academy  is thrilled with this news  - we have been working Jane and McAlpine for some weeks now and the design gives us a building that is educationally inspiring. There is no doubt it will transform the community.

The innovative and spacious design focuses around the 'school within schools' concept which is at the heart of the academy's ethos  giving pupils a sense of belonging  and family. As well as embracing the two specialisms of maths and arts, the design  makes the most of the stunning views to the south of the site with glazed shared learning areas leading to ICT rich classrooms.

"Facilities such as the magnificent 330 seater theatre,  hair and beauty salon, motor mechanics workshop and  brand new sports pitches  will all be available to the local community as well as providing exciting new opportunities for Sarum Academy  pupils."
