The new build is go!
We were delighted to receive the news in October that our new, state-of-the-art school was approved to be built by Barnsley Metropolitan Borough Council’s Planning Committee.
Our building contractor, Bowmer and Kirkland, will now start the building process. Demolition of the old NHS buildings has already taken place and those of you who pass by Keresforth Close now or in the next 12 months will start to see our building and surrounding sporting facilities take shape.
As it stands, we still do not have an exact opening date but, we do know it will hopefully be within the academic year 2023-24. As work starts and plans grow, we will use this page to update everyone, share more pictures and celebrate the building taking shape.
We are so excited to have reached this crucial milestone and can’t wait to see the area be developed. We’re looking forward to working with Bowmer and Kirkland to bring our community a school and facilities for the future.
Current School Location
By September 2023, the academy will open its brand-new facility on Keresforth Close, off Broadway. Designed to the highest specification, using the latest technology to provide the very best of educational facilities, Trinity Academy St Edward’s will be a fantastic, purpose-built school.
Until then, Trinity Academy St Edward’s is located at Eastgate House, 9 Eastgate, Barnsley. As this building was formally a college building, it provides an ideal location to spend the first two years of our educational journey. The building is equipped with science labs, art rooms and a cafeteria. For our P.E curriculum and extra-curricular activities, we utilise the sporting facilities at Honeywell Sports.
Our founding cohort and 2022 cohort will have the opportunity to visit the site at Keresforth and be able to see their future school built right in front of their eyes, getting involved in exciting projects linked to our STEM specialism to help design the final layout and look of their new school.
