Isle of Portland Aldridge Community Academy Will Build A New Campus

IPACA  2

IPACA on Portland has won the right to build a new campus at Southwell Business park.

The Academy had been doing battle with the Borough Council's planning committee who'd refused to let building go ahead.

Governors appealed to the planning inspector last month and the decision has now been overturned.

Head teacher Alison Appleyeard said in statement, the new campus would allow them to create a "world-class" facility.

"This is a significant decision which will have major benefits for all of young people on Portland and the wider local community. The new campus has always been an integral part of our vision to create a world-class Academy for our learners. An Academy that Portland can be proud of.

It will enable us to deliver exceptional education based on our unique mix of stage-not-age, all-through-learning, digital learning, entrepreneurship and a one-big-family ethos.

We are passionate about ensuring that all of our learners achieve the highest standards, skills and qualifications. Our new campus, with its 21st century facilities, will make a real difference."

Now that the decision has been made IPACE will start developing detailed plans for the construction and the eventual transfer to our new campus.

It's hoped the new building will be ready for September 2015.
