THE LAUNCH OF BEDFORD ACADEMY’S BRAND NEW BUILDING

The new, £22.5 million, state of the art Bedford Academy building is due to open in November 2012, and as Bedford Academy is becoming an 11-18yrs secondary school many of the surrounding schools are converting to Primary Schools.

 

The project has been delivered by the local company, Wilmott Dixon. The new building will be replacing the former John Bunyan school building and has a spectacular variety of facilities available, offering specialisation in science and technology.

 

Bedford Academy will be offering tours of the new facility to prospective parents at their open evening on 11th October.

 

Cllr David Sawyer, Portfolio Holder for Education at Bedford Borough Council, said “This is a hugely impressive building and it will serve young people extremely well by creating specialised learning spaces. As well as the substantial investment in a new Secondary School, the Borough Council has invested funds in the schools in the surrounding area that are converting into Primary Schools.”

 

The following schools will become Primary Schools in September 2013:

  • Cauldwell Lower
  • Cotton End Lower
  • Elstow Lower
  • Shackleton Lower
  • Shortstown Lower

 

Stephenson Lower will become Stephenson Primary in September 2014.

 

In July 2014 both Harrowden Middle School and Abbey Middle School will close.

 

In the meantime, both middle schools remain fully functioning with continued high expectations, and both schools are working together to support a smooth transition for pupils.

 

Applications for school places in September 2013 opened on 1st October 2012.
