Summer Building Work

Over the summer holidays, a number of building works have been carried to improve the school buildings and educational experience for everyone at Nightingale Community Academy.

Most striking is the decoration of the dining hall with a brightly coloured graphic design by the London Print artist, The Fandangoe Kid. Pupils are loving the newly decorated hall and are enjoying eating their meals in this cheerful space.

There has also been a new IT suite installed (Photos above) and the library has been refurbished (photos below). Teachers are looking forward to the enhanced lessons and activities they will be able to deliver in these wonderful new rooms.

Externally the car park has also been refurbished to improve the parking in front of the school.

 

The principal and leadership team, well supported by the Orchard Hill College and Academy Trust, have provided strong leadership, which has had a positive impact on the school’s effectiveness. As a result, there have been improvements in all areas, most noticeably in pupils’ behaviour and attitudes, the curriculum and in the wider opportunities for pupils.
