Work starts to take shape at Eastbourne Academy site

Building work has begun to replace ageing classrooms at the Eastbourne Academy.

Recently Eastbourne MP Stephen Lloyd visited the Brodrick Road school for a site tour of the new buildings. He was accompanied by principal Keith Pailthorpe, senior site managers from Kier Construction, Benn Hunter and Martin Perry and the Academy’s student ambassadors.

Mr Lloyd said, “The transformation we are seeing is amazing. So much effort from so many people has gone into this school in the last few years. The extensive building works are the icing on the cake and Hampden Park will be getting the new school it deserves.”
