Hethersett Academy

The facility has given the existing school an additional 17 new classrooms for subjects English, Maths and Art and a ‘performance space’ Main Hall with state-of-the-art lighting and sound systems. Within this are specialist supplied retractable audience seating and an acoustic full-height division wall installation to maximise the flexibility of the usable space.

Externally the existing sports facilities have been upgraded with new fence-enclosed netball and tennis courts and a long jump pit and multi-lane run-up. All hard surfaces have been provided in coloured polymeric resin surfaces to enable multi-usage flexibility.

To the North of the site a vacant field area has been fully fence enclosed and the levels regraded and sub-service drainage installed to provide competition standard football and rugby pitches. Linking the new building to the new playing field facility is achieved by a provision of a 36-bay surfaced car / coach park and turning area with a new 350m long occasional vehicle use link footpath back to the main site.

Internal doors and fixtures for the project were provided by Youngs Doors and Bullen Joinery and Eyre Group delivered the M&E and Plumbing works.
