Breckland Council has granted planning permission for a new building for Attleborough Academy Norfolk, which will provide modern and attractive teaching spaces and a welcoming new focal point at the front of the site.
Neil McShane, Principal, Attleborough Academy Norfolk, said:
“Thanks to funding from the Priority School Building Programme (under the Department for Education) and Norfolk County Council, these important plans for the Academy will enable us to replace existing mobile accommodation with modern and attractive new teaching spaces.
“The planned new 2-storey building, situated between the main school and the David Bartram building, will provide much-needed new facilities for our Arts and Drama courses, as well as for our Special Educational Needs provision.
“The new building will also enable us to relocate the main Academy reception, providing a welcoming new focal point at the front of the site.
“The new building fits in with our Master Plan for the site, which sets out our exciting vision for a new Sixth Form, Community and Enterprise Centre, and Sports Village.
“This longer-term plan will enable us to provide an outstanding learning environment for rising numbers of students in years to come, as Attleborough itself grows, which will be a resource for our students as well as the community.”
