The Bulwell Academy Wikipedia
The Bulwell Academy caters for 1,050 11- to 16-year-olds with up to a further 250 places for post-16 students. The academy has a business and enterprise specialism and has local business partnerships.
Paul Halcro is the principal of The Bulwell Academy and has been in teaching for more than 15 years having previously been deputy head at Thomas Telford School, one of the UK’s top performing schools.
The multimillion-pound building, opened in 2010, has a modern design including a number of environmental sustainability features. On arrival at The Bulwell Academy students are confronted by a large, glass-fronted Enterprise Hub – a key design feature to emphasise the academy’s business and enterprise specialism. A central courtyard area is sheltered by a tented roofing system where rainwater is collected and used as ‘grey’ water to flush the toilets. Another unusual feature is the roof area, which is 80 per cent covered in sedum – a moss-type plant – to help reduce incoming noise and minimise rain water run-off.Principal: Paul Halcro
