Our School

Building work updates

After years of a lack of investment The Skipton Academy had to close many classrooms because of leaking roofs, discoloured ceiling tiles and inadequate lighting but now thanks to our work with Moorlands Learning Trust and the DfE the buildings are being transformed with brand new fixtures and fittings to create a fantastic new learning environment ready for teaching.

The £3.2 million investment also includes a brand new perimeter fence, redesigning the gym block and refurbishing White and Derwent blocks to create an Academy site fit for the twenty first century and the increasing numbers of students who are choosing The Skipton Academy.  




Building work- Calder

All internal doors have been replaced to meet fire safety standards and old ones have been recycled by a local charity in Leeds.
