Farringdon Community Academy is having a new school built which is planned to open around September 2023. This will be a ‘state of the art’ school and will accommodate up to 1200 students. We are so excited to see what is produced. The new school is currently in the design stages. When we have the plans we will be updating this page on the  school website so you can follow the progress of the new build of our academy along with us.

The sports facilities (sports hall, pavilion, tennis courts and 3G pitch) will be the only remaining parts of the school. All of our teaching areas will be brand new. The new build will happen on the grass field behind the diner, there will be no impact on lessons. We will continue as normal as our new building takes shape.

These are exciting times! Be sure to look out for updates on the new build on our website and social media.
