Facilities

Representing an investment of £33 million, Hope Academy is one of the most sustainable and highly specified education buildings in the UK and Europe.

Truly exceptional facilities include 12 outdoor interactive learning spaces, a kitchen garden, science garden, sustainability garden and attenuation pond, with a wireless internet system covering the whole site enabling fully accessible outdoor working.

Wind turbines provide off-peak electricity, photovoltaic panels generate energy, and heating and hot water is supplied by renewable biomass sources on site; features which not only benefit the environment but our pupils, whose study of sustainable development represents our school specialism.

Hope Academy operates a CCTV system in order to enhance the security and safety of our premises, pupils, staff and visitors.

Across its 20 acre site, the Academy provides:
