Within a stone’s throw of Wembley Arch this new Academy provides state of the art learning facilities for 1570 students, 420 at primary and 1150 at secondary level. Sponsored by ARK, the Academy’s specialisms are in Citizenship and Mathematics.
The building design recognised the opportunity of transforming an understated and under used corner site on a busy Wembley high road into a new aspirational centre of learning, a building with a civic presence fostering pride amongst its young users and surrounding community. A bold series of contemporary buildings is accessed through a grand “porte-cochere” that announces the Academy to the street and symbolises integration between school and public realm.
The Academy includes an extensive array of halls and indoor/ outdoor sports facilities which can be shared between the school and the local community. A strategy of passive and renewable environmental measures ensures that the Academy will be a top sustainable performer achieving a “very good” BREEAM evaluation rating.
