We are delighted with the newly refurbished building so far and we have received some tremendous comments from parents, visitors and students about the changes that have already been made. The quality of teaching and learning is constantly improving as we are able to provide modern 21st century learning facilities and teaching spaces.
Our new building, the Central Hub, is well underway. Over the summer months the concrete piles were sunk, and in recent weeks the concrete floor slab has been laid and the new steelworks are rising at a rate of knots. We should be moving into it around Easter time and by September the whole of the premises will have been rebuilt or refurbished.
There will be state of the art teaching and learning facilities; with a heavy emphasis on I.T. provision along with brand new tailor-made specialist learning suites for Technology, Business Studies, Science, Art & Music. All of this will augment the brand new classrooms for English, Mathematics, Languages and Humanities.
Our new facilities will create a learning environment that we hope will make the community proud and we will be welcoming out of hours users as well so that we become a centre of excellence and are able to play a valuable role in the lives of many of the local population.
The new Year 7 students have certainly made a successful start to their learning programmes at KLA and are enjoying their experiences and want to share their Academy with other students.
Katelyn Reed said “I think that the time I’ve been here has been amazing. I hope the new building will make other students come here. The building is outstanding.” It is a sentiment shared by Melvin Aravjo who summed it all up “I think the new building is going to make the school look cool and make more people come to the Academy.”
