At Schools Plus we love working alongside the successful and vibrant Bulwell Academy, which is found in its namesake town Bulwell, near Nottingham. The academy is part of the growing Creative Education Trust and has some truly state-of-the-art facilities.
In this blog post we’d like to take you through the facilities available for hire here on Evenings, Weekends and School Holidays through School Plus. Before we start our mini ‘tour’ we wanted to get a few words from Dave Maher, our Venue Manager at Bulwell Academy, about his experience working with the academy;
Bulwell Academy is a truly great academy to work at. All the teachers and staff are fantastic and you can really feel a strong sense of community atmosphere around the place. We’re fortunate to have a wonderful group of regular customers here as well, who I look forward to seeing each evening!Dave Maher, Venue Manager at Bulwell Academy.
We’re going to start our preview of the facilities available to hire at Bulwell Academy with the Sports Hall. This is one of the most popular venue at the academy and for good reason! You can play a huge variety of sports in here including traditional sports such as Football, Netball, Badminton, Basketball and more niche activities such as Archery, Dodgeball and Kickboxing.
Another great place to keep active at the academy is the Dance Studio. This large studio comes complete with a mirrored wall and a wooden floor, making it the perfect location to host dance and fitness classes as well as more relaxed activities including Yoga.
If you wanted to hire the academy for a one-off event or community gathering then there are a couple of different options, the first being the Main Hall. This impressive venue can accommodate over 300 people and has hosted such varied events before as music concerts, film festivals, business conferences and worship events.
An alternative venue to host larger bookings at Bulwell Academy is The Courtyard. This sheltered area is located at the centre of the school and is an ideal space for festivals, fairs and children’s birthday parties. The open space is truly flexible and has often used by the academy for large charity days.
Moving outside for our last facility on our tour, the Astro Pitch. This impressive 2G can be booked as a single 11 a side pitch or can easily be divided up into three 7 a side pitches. The pitch is fully floodlit and, as with all bookings at Bulwel Academy, comes complete with free secure on-site parking.
