We are delighted to have formally taken over our Stanley Road campus on 22 June 2015, as the building itself is now complete. We are now working to put the final touches inside and around the site so that it will be ready to welcome our 450 students in September; in the meantime, the pictures below, which were taken on 12 May, should give you a flavour of our state-of-the-art new facilities.
A group of students visited the new campus on handover day, and their overall response was “Wow!” They particularly loved the climbing wall, sports hall and 3G pitch; here are some of the other comments they made:
“The Science labs are spacious, bright and airy, and the lab benches looked great.”
“The climbing wall is amazing and can be used by people of all abilities.”
“The library is lovely and has really cool ceiling-to-floor windows.”
“There are acoustic panels all round the building to stop voices echoing.”
“Each floor has one of the Archer colours to help you navigate around the building.”
“The new building is really modern, and I can’t wait to study there.”
We are very much looking forward to taking each tutor group for a tour during this half term. Dates will be also published shortly for parents and community members to visit Stanley Road.
We really do have a great deal to look forward to!
