ST ANNE’S ACADEMY IS A FAITH BASED 900 PLACE ACADEMY SPONSORED BY MANCHESTER DIOCESE AND THE CROSSLAND FOUNDATION. A WELCOMING ENTRANCE LEADS TO A CONGREGATION AND DINING SPACE WHICH REFLECTS CAREFULLY THE SCHOOL ETHOS AND CHRISTIAN VALUES.
A simple building form has been adopted, which expresses a ‘3 schools within a school’ concept, organised along a shared spine. This in turn creates a highly flexible learning environment which enables a more integrated model where subjects are blended through the curriculum.
The Academy has two specialisms; ICT and The Built Environment, which are expressed in the overall design of the new facilities. Key principles behind the design are driven by a series of education concepts rather than a standard system of building.
