Students working in the new drama studio - January 2016
After just a few months of construction our new Drama block is finally ready for use. The space is an amazing addition to our academy’s facilities: creating new classrooms, extra space and most importantly a fabulous state of the art drama studio (94m2 and 81m2), complete with top of the range integrated LED lighting and audio equipment.  

The Project

The project seeks to infill a section of the present PFI building to maximise the teaching capacity to meet an increase in the demand for places.

Highlights of the new building:

  • Two drama studios (94m2 and 81m2) with sprung wooden floors integrated sound and LED lighting.
  • One classroom (55m2)
  • One small classroom (35m2)
  • New CEA office (25m2)
  • Storage rooms (21m2)
  • All works to comply with current Building Bulletin requirements.
