Washwood Heath Academy is located on Burney Lane, Washwood Heath and is currently a school with approximately 1400 pupils in attendance. The school offers placements for children aged 4 to post 16. An exciting new chapter of the development of Washwood Heath Academy Trust commenced in February 2018 to offer an additional 14 classrooms and associated facilities.

The construction works will be split into two phases:

Phase 1 – Phase one works commenced in February 2018 and comprise of the demolition of existing structures, including the existing vacant caretaker’s two storey house and outbuilding, alongside the removal of existing trees and soft landscaping. The creation of a new wider dual access road will facilitate the future development of phase two.

Phase 2 – The second phase will consist of the creation of a new 180 space staff car park to the east of the site on existing outdoor school fields. The new proposed two storey extension will accommodate a one form entry primary school at ground floor level and an additional seven secondary school classrooms at first floor level to provide 14 new classrooms, complimented with associated playground and landscaping.
