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 has 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, there is a change of access which is now from Atherton Way, rather than Grammar School Road.

The next phase is the demolition of the old buildings and it is anticipated that by the start of the next academic year, in September, it will be fully completed.

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