Work is about to commence on a new £2m community sports hall at Longfield Academy of Sport.
The development will include the construction of a new 4 court sports hall, changing rooms, community gym, lawn tennis association standard tennis courts and additional car parking.
This is an exciting time for the Academy, who have been trying to secure funding for this facility for the last ten years.
It is anticipated that completion will take place in summer 2013. The sports hall once complete should have a significant positive effect on the learning experience of pupils in the Academy, but will also become a local hub for a variety of sporting and community activities.
Headteacher Susan Johnson, cut the first turf on Monday 15th October 2012.
