A glimpse of what Top Valley Academy would look like if plans to rebuild it get the green light, has been unveiled.

A well-attended consultation event has taken place, giving details of the £14 million scheme and showing artists’ impressions of the project.

The Education Funding Agency (EFA), a delivery arm of the Education Department, has appointed a company called Carillion to rebuild a number of secondary schools across the Midlands.

Top Valley Academy is the only Nottingham school to benefit from the initiative. Another of the selected schools is in Alfreton.

Carillion have submitted a full planning application which will be submitted to Nottingham City Council on 9th February.

Given the go-ahead, work is due to start in late summer and it is ancipated that the new academy would open in September 2017.

EFA Midlands project manager Mo Chatra said: “We believe this will be an exciting development.

“Once complete, we hope the new school building will become one of the local community’s most prized assets.”
