In November 2012, the Education Funding Agency agreed to purchase the Institute Arts Centre at Beaumont Close on behalf of the Archer Academy. This beautiful, well-located building will provide ample space for two year groups, and will be used as our upper school once we are up to full capacity.
As part of the agreement, the Institute is retaining use of a section of the building during the academic year 2013-14. From September 2014, the Archer Academy will occupy the whole of the Beaumont Close campus.
We have worked with the EFA and specialist architects to refit and rework this former adult education centre inside and out, creating flexible spaces for teaching and learning which perfectly suit our students and our curriculum.
