Year 7 students at King’s Lynn Academy are seeing their building change before their eyes.
Harvey Luker, who started in September, said “The new building will be amazing for learning with other people, I’m so lucky to be a part of the KLA.” Rebecca Morgan added “This building is epic”.
These are certainly exciting time at Kings Lynn Academy, which has seen examination success dramatically improve in its first two years and has now embarked upon this 21st century building project.
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. The schedule calls for the new building to be completed and ready for occupation after Easter, 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, Mathematic, Languages and Humanities.
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.
The Academy believes in “Learning without Limits” and the Principal, Mr Craig Morrison, has high hopes that the new building will provide the best possible teaching and learning facilities in West Norfolk because “our students deserve the best”
