5 advantages our urban campus offers our pupils and our community

  • At Beaumont Close and Stanley Road, we are developing and creating school buildings whose design will reflect our curriculum. In doing so, we have asked ourselves 'How good can it be?' and are working with the EFA and DfE to deliver the best possible teaching and learning environments for our students.
  • Having two campuses allows us to give our upper and lower school students their own distinct spaces in which to grow, learn and develop. Our younger students will start their secondary school careers in a secure, nurturing environment, without the sometimes overwhelming presence of much older children. Similarly, our older students will gain a real sense of pride and responsibility when they move up to our upper school, and will have the space to mature in a more 'grown up' environment.
  • At the same time, because we are one school, we will still have access to large-school budgets, staffing levels and breadth of curriculum. This is also true when it comes to mentoring opportunities for our older students, who will be able to take on leadership roles through the school's house system, extra-curricular activities and so on. So our students will benefit from large school opportunities, but within the day-to-day environment of a smaller, more nurturing school.
  • As well as providing a brand new teaching and learning environment for our students, the Archer Academy's development of Stanley Road brings real benefits for our wider community, safeguarding the site from over-development and providing facilities for local people to use outside of school usage. One of our key principles is 'Engaging with our community', and our plans for Stanley Road show how deeply this is built into the foundations of our school.
  • Furthermore, our partnership with Sport East Finchley in the development of Stanley Road is giving us access to extra funds which would not have been available to either organisation individually. So our school will get far better sports facilities than the EFA would otherwise have been able to provide us with, and the community will have access to better facilities than Sport East Finchley alone could have secured.
