At Schools Plus we are privileged to currently operate out of 80+ schools, each with their own unique locations and history. We love to celebrate our school’s whenever we can and today is no different!
In this blog we’d like to share with you a few schools that are set in some truly interesting and breath-taking areas in the country with stunning views including; national football stadiums, beautiful forest parks and former Olympic villages.
We’d like to start with Ark Academy Wembley, an all-through learning school located in its namesake Wembley area of London. We’re proud long-term partners of the school and we’re delight to continue to allow the local community the chance to hire out the fantastic facilities found here.
One of the most popular facilities at Ark Academy is the 3G Astro Pitch and one of the main reasons for this is the incredible backdrop the pitch has – Wembley Stadium! There can’t be many better views in the country when playing football than the famous Wembley Stadium arch in sight behind the goals.
One of our central London schools Harris Westminster Sixth Form is located in Steel House, a former Ministry of Justice building and is found in the historic government area of Westminster. The school is near landmarks such as Westminster Abby, St James Park and the Houses of Parliament. This incredible environment is highly motivating for the selected students who attend this sixth form.
Continuing with our London schools we’d also like to share with you some of the incredible sights and views customers at Chobham Academy can enjoy during their bookings. We’ve touched on the incredible architecture and backstory of Chobham Academy recently here, but to catch you up the academy is set in the East Village area of the Olympic Park in Stratford East London.
The views around Chobham Academy include Lee Valley VeloPark, where the cycling events were held during the London Olympics 2012 and a bit further down the road the impressive Olympic Stadium itself.
Moving away from London we’re lucky to work with Schools from nearly the top of country, at Ingleby Manor School in County Durham, down to the South in Eastbourne at The Causeway School. Causeway School itself is a good example of a School with a breathing backdrop as there is a lake just behind the School grounds.
Another one of the schools we operate in outside London that we’d like to highlight, for its unique setting is Thetford Academy in Norfolk, England. Norfolk is famed for its stunning countryside and Thetford Academy itself is surrounded by such areas, including Thetford Forest Park.
We hope you enjoyed this selection of some of the more interesting settings and backdrops our schools find themselves in. We love having the opportunity to work at each of these sites and we’re sure they’d make the perfect homes for your event. If you’d like to make a booking at any of these venues, then please get in touch with our Customer Contact Centre –
We look forward to hearing from you.
