Student Voice

This could be picking up a trowel to develop bricklaying skills, designing a new family home and the initial insight into architect through to planning your own housing development with the use of science and mathematics.

You have said you would like more time within a practical construction environment so as a result we are investigating in building state of the art environments within your academy and setting a benchmark for vocational qualifications at key stage 4.
