Venue Hire

In order to limit numbers to the building and keep our community as safe as possible, we are not currently hiring out our facilities.

The Academy works in partnership with the local community to promote a wide range of activities, events and learning opportunities for young people and adults. It aims to develop and strengthen relationships with community organisations through the hire of the Academy’s extensive facilities.

The Academy has a wide variety of spaces ranging from an award-winning atrium to classrooms, new state-of-the-art science labs and an auditorium seating 180 people.

Charges are competitive with substantial discount for community, charity and voluntary organisations. We hope to be able to resume venue hire soon.

Academy Sport remains open. For more details about our sports facilities, please visit: Academy Sport
