New School Build at South Nottinghamshire Academy

New School Build at South Nottinghamshire Academy (photos)
South Nottinghamshire Academy in Radcliffe on Trent has been given the fantastic final confirmation that it will be rebuilt as part of the Government’s Priority Schools Build Programme. Bowmer and Kirkland have been selected as the designated contractor and have started work with the new building opening ready for September 2016.

Dan Philpotts (Head of Academy) stated that ‘planning and consultation has been taking place for some time and we have had to make some difficult decisions along the way but it is a wonderful, ‘once in a lifetime’ opportunity for our community to have a fantastic fit for purpose new school building. Our students only get one chance at their secondary education and we will finally have an incredible resource to add value to our provision’.

The building is a three storey finger block design which meets the educational needs of current students and future generations. General and practical teaching spaces have been organised in suites with a sense of identity, but allowing some variation in the range of spaces. The new build is efficient and provides a dining space which is a central focus to the school and can be used as a milling space during the school day and, in conjunction with the hall and drama space, for after-school events.
South Nottinghamshire Academy is committed to being at the heart of the community with facilities readily available and accessible for the local community.

Modern facilities
The new building will have an intelligent building energy management system that will use advanced technology to manage the heating, lighting, acoustics and ventilation. It will also accommodate modern, fit for purpose facilities and will include:

  • Specialist teaching areas: Art and Technology, English, Humanities, ICT, Maths, Modern Foreign Languages, Music and Science
  • Spacious learning resource centre
  • State of the art kitchen with a central dining room
  • Main Hall / Theatre with bleacher seating
  • Separate sixth form study room and common room
  • Drama / Dance studio
  • Fitness suite

The only existing facilities that will remain are the artificial floodlit pitch, tennis courts and the sportshall, with the latter receiving a significant refurbishment. Once complete, the new building will exceed modern build specifications and provide the school community with a long lasting, modern day facility that will enhance students’ educational experience.


The Academy will remain open throughout the build process with some buildings being closed and demolished - health and safety will be a priority. The Academy will ensure that disruption is minimised from beginning to end and that safety and safeguarding standards are maintained throughout.  
“I am delighted that we will have a school building that our community can be rightly proud of and an amazing new facility for our students. It marks the next step on our journey of improvement and, for everyone involved with South Nottinghamshire Academy, a very exciting future lies ahead”.
