New Build

Work on our new academy began in the spring of 2015.  The £13.9m project, was financed by the Education Funding Agency, and opened in January, 2017.  The Vale Academy is a state-of-the-art new building which will provide for the needs of all students well into the 21st Century. 

Although located on the same site, the only road access is from Atherton Way, rather than Grammar School Road.


With the old buildings now demolished, the final landscaping and hard surfaces are in their final phase of completion. 

The build is part of the PSBP (Priority School Building Programme) which is funded by the EFA (Education Funding Agency).
