The High Weald Academy New Building Approved

The High Weald Academy is excited to announce that we have been granted planning permission for the construction of our new school building.

We look forward to welcoming the construction team from Bowmer and Kirkland on site here in Cranbrook in January.

"This is the fantastic news we have been waiting to being able to share with our students, families and staff for so long. We will now have a suite of classrooms and facilitates to be proud of and which will demonstrate to our whole community the great value and importance we place on our students’ learning experiences. " Mrs Taylor - Co-Principal.

The High Weald Academy is a small rural school and we pride ourselves on the family ethos and culture which comes from knowing each student for their individual talents, interests and abilities. The significant investment being made in our academy will mean that students will have access to a new learning resources centre, drama studio and suite of music classrooms and practice spaces. There will be three new art classrooms alongside the new dining facilities as well as two specialist science laboratories and five general science laboratories on the second floor. English, maths, humanities and modern foreign languages will all also be located in the new building.

We are very fortunate that we will not need to utilise any temporary accommodation during the construction phase. The demolition of the old buildings is the final phase of the work and will mark the completion of this project.

We will be sharing the journey from ‘breaking ground’ to moving in via our Facebook and Twitter accounts and very much look forward to seeing the new building come to life over the next eighteen months.
