Welcome to a new year and new era at The Vale Academy.
We have moved into our fabulous £13.9-million new building, accessed via our new entrance off Atherton Way.
It gives students and teachers the state-of-the-art facilities they deserve, said Principal Nicola Williams.
“We’re delighted to welcome our students and staff to our new building. I’d like to thank the team who have worked tirelessly throughout the Christmas holidays, packing and unpacking, to ensure the move is as smooth as possible,” she said.
“The new building is up and running, though it will take a little while for us all to settle in to our wonderful new environment.
“What won’t change is our ethos: welcoming with the same high expectations.
The building is part of the Priority School Building Programme which is being financed by the Education Funding Agency. The Vale is a member of the Delta Academies Trust.
Parents and the wider community will have a chance to see the facilities later this term. Details will be announced on this website.
