Buildings & Facilities

Over the past five years The Farnley Academy has undergone a transformation and now boasts state of the art facilities both internally and externally. Through a £23 million pound Building Schools for the Future (BSF) project, and in-house investment, almost the entire site has been redeveloped. As a result of this investment, spaces such as our Learning Resources Centre (LRC) make an excellent contribution to the life of the Academy. In December 2013, Ofsted reported that: "The academy library is used extensively throughout the school day, including after school, and has helped to raise the profile and importance of reading. Inspectors were impressed by the many students who used their spare time reading and borrowing books to read at home." In addition to this we now also have a number of community teams who use our facilities on an evening and weekend and have hosted a range of community events this year.

The Academy now boasts:

  • A considerable sports gym with cricket nets, an array of sporting equipment and four changing rooms.

  • A new auditorium suitable for conferences, assemblies and performances with retractable seating and £52,000 of lighting and sound equipment

  • A state of the art media suite with CAD / CAM technology and green and white screens.

  • Brand new spacious Science Labs with a demonstration space for the teaching of large groups by visiting Scientific specialists

  • A state of the art music department including 2 suites of Apple Mac computers, a recording studio, amphitheatre rehearsal space and a number of practice rooms

  • New ICT classrooms that enhance both collaborative and individual working.

  • A number of computer rich breakout spaces
