Temple Learning Academy, Leeds
We have been awarded a project to transform a disused leisure centre into a new free school in East Leeds as part of the Education Funding Agency Framework. The former East Leeds Leisure Centre site will become the new permanent home for the Temple Learning Academy. The scheme is re-using as much of the existing infrastructure from the former leisure centre as possible.
The internal layout is being significantly reconfigured to create modern teaching accommodation and we are installing additional windows to bring natural light into the structure.
A new three-storey steel frame extension will be primarily used to deliver core curriculum for pupils from Reception to Year 11. Facilities will include bight modern classrooms, specialist teaching rooms, science and technology labs, a kitchen, dining area and sports facilities. The project also includes the construction of a new MUGA pitch and significant landscaping with new paths and play areas, a car park for 90 cars and designated drop off areas.
You will get to visit the project at an exciting time as we are now working on the final finishes, as we prepare to hand the scheme over to the school at the end of April. You will get a sneak peak of the new facilities, with a tour of the new build extension and the refurbished leisure centre.
