Built in 1959, the North Cambridge Academy redevelopment was fast-tracked by the government after reports were published stating that the old buildings were unfit for purpose. The first phase of the £10 million project began with the demolition of the old school buildings which was professionally and efficiently executed by Mick George Contracting.
A new school is being constructed alongside the existing buildings to avoid any loss in function for the Academy during the works. The new footprint will have two main wings with an adjoining section forming the main entrance. Not only will the academy facilities be greatly improved, its capacity will also increase from 450 to 750 pupils and once vacated, the old school site will be fully landscaped and made available for community use.
