Armfield Academy – Building Developments Update 6 (BDU6)

Date: Thursday 19th July 2018

 

“Welcome to our sixth 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, 60 Reception students and the Nursery children.  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”.

**  “We are very pleased with the magnificent progress being made to our Armfield Academy ready for September 2018.  Everything is going to plan as described in the captions, with the kitchen stainless steel equipment being installed at the very end of the building programme.  The 4G Astroturf is a brilliant, quality facility, marked out as a full size football pitch.  Our Armfield students will love the hi-tec classroom spaces along with the artificial football surface and brand new cricket square on the St. Annes Road field”
