Barnsley Academy is a new build project for 1150 students on green belt land replacing the existing Elmhirst School bringing the new academy into the heart of the community it serves.

The massing of the building is an explicit response to the natural topography of the site allowing the overall mass to be kept at a scale commensurate with its surroundings affording views of the undulating landscape beyond.

The specialism of Science with Business and Enterprise is carried through into innovative design features such as interactive virtual laboratories and tiered ICT suites.
