PROGRESS ON MEA’S NEW DURIE BUILDING
During the summer holidays the building work on Manchester Enterprise Academy’s new £12 million extension began in earnest and now that the steel is going up the new Durie Building is really starting to take shape.
On the ground floor of the new building there will be a new theatre space, new art rooms, a fashion room for our new GCSE course, a music room and practice rooms. On the first floor the English department will enjoy a new suite of rooms and the second floor will be dedicated to Science allowing us to inspire even more students in this subject. The rest of the campus is also being redeveloped with a new full-size all-weather sports pitch, a new social area for our Year 7 students and a refurbished sports hall and changing rooms.
These amazing new facilities will also mean that MEA can offer 240 places to Year 7s starting secondary school in September 2017. This is an increase of 30 places from 2016 which was hugely oversubscribed.
Construction company, Wilmott Dixon, who are building the extension recently joined us at our Open Evening in October with their mascots, Honour & Ivor Goodsite, and were able to show visitors the plans for the new building and redeveloped campus.
Thank you to all our partners involved in this redevelopment: Manchester City Council, Wilmott Dixon, Pozzoni and Saffer Cooper Consultancy. We are really excited to watch the progress and cannot wait for it to open.
