New wing opens in Lansdown Park Academy Rush Hill
Lansdown Park Rush Hill Academy celebrated a £100,000 investment by Bath & North East Somerset Council to improve classrooms and equipment as the school year closed last week.
The school was officially opened in January 2019 to educate and improve the life chances of young people from the Bath area who have been excluded from their secondary school, or are at risk of exclusion.
Based in the former Bath Community College the academy, run by Learn@ Multi-Academy Trust (MAT), now has an additional and renovated wing and improved outdoor spaces for sport and conversation. Renovations include two light and airy classrooms, a library and study area, indoor activity space for sport and new student toilets.
Learn@ MAT aims for zero exclusions from its schools so has developed nurture rooms for students to have quiet space to communicate freely and in confidence. This helps staff understand their needs so they can remove barriers to learning and boost emotional development.
