A bird's eye view: Improvements to the Whitley Academy buildings

Something that students won't really get to see, although the benefits will be felt, is the new roof overlay system recently installed on part of our existing roof.  This recent works is phase one of a three part roof replacement project envisaged to be complete over three academic years.

After securing a government grant for most of the £220,000 cost, the system will provide at least another 25 years of dry, secure weather protection for our building. With a further two phases to come (pending further grants being secured) the school will be in ship-shape condition for the next generation’s students.
