Glancy Nicholls Architects were appointed by Sandwell Futures Ltd, on behalf of SMBC, to undertake the extension of school places to the RSA Academy in Tipton.

The scheme will see the pupil places extend to the school by providing suitable accommodation which is designed with the quality of teaching in mind. This will come in the form of a new stand-alone building consisting of mainly general teaching spaces and associated facilities.

The new building will be 2 storeys with a 1.5 storey dining hall block located to the rear. The works also include a landscaped frontage, external hard play areas with perimeter planting, a new football pitch and remodelling of the existing carpark.
