Welcome to Alec Reed Academy
Welcome to the website of the Alec Reed Academy. The High School phase of the Academy opened in predecessor buildings on the existing site in September 2003 as one of the original 12 Academies. In 2004 the Primary Phase, also on the same original site, joined the Academy making it the second all-age Academy in the country and in September 2005 our state of the art facilities, designed by the world famous Foster and Partners, opened. Together with the impressive Nursery and Early Years building (the Arc) and the specialist Design Technology, Art and Design and Digital Media centre (the Quad and Zeppelin) designed by award winning Architects Co-Partnership which opened in 2012 these outstanding facilities have helped to set new standards for our 21st century learning environment.
This website provides the virtual gateway to our campus and an insight into our learning community.
The Academy is an exciting place to work and learn and we take seriously the fact that our children and young people only get one chance at an excellent education. To this end we strive to ensure that everyone in the Academy community is able to take advantage of the best available facilities and opportunities during their time with us. We aim to equip our children and young people with the skills necessary for life in an ever-changing, highly technological world whether it be their intention to progress through our sixth form and on to university or into employment and training.
The Alec Reed Academy lies at the heart of the community, we are proud of what we have to offer and invite you to contact us for further information.
