The Axis Academy in Cheshire East will create a friendly environment for forty-eight pupils with special educational needs and disability (SEND).
This is the third project to be awarded to us by the Department of Education (DfE). The project is to design and build The Axis Academy, a SEND school for children in Crewe. The facility will provide places for forty pupils, aged four to sixteen and will focus on children with social, emotional and mental health difficulties.
The 1676m2 new build will include a Structural Insulated Panel (SIP) superstructure with single ply roof. The external facades will have brickwork on the lower storey and render on the upper storey. A MUGA (multi-use games area) will be constructed to the South of the proposed school, with car parking facilities to the North and East.
The Axis Academy is a special school which will focus on children with mental health difficulties, giving them a safe space to learn, where they feel secure, protected and ready to embrace their education. This is a much needed provision in Cheshire East, and we are very excited about opening our doors to pupils who will benefit from our nurturing approach to education. We are working with Henry Boot closely, and thank them for their excellent communication, and for always keeping us up to date with the progress of the build.

The school will be completed in Autumn 2020.
