BDU2 – Date: Wednesday 21st March 2018



“Welcome to our second BDU which gives readers an insight into the building developments currently taking place on the academy sites to the north and south of Arnold Avenue. 

The South Buildings will be ready in time for our September 2018 intake of 160 Year 7 students and 60 Reception students.  The bullet points below identify what specific actions are currently underway and what will follow. 

Please see the architectural elevations on BDU1 (please click latest news) of how our fantastic new Armfield Academy will look.  I intend to post further regular BDUs with photographs on a monthly basis.  Thank you for your continued support”.
