Footprint Architects are pleased to announce the recent grant of full planning permission for a proposed two storey new building on the former Townsend Primary School to form the Jewell Academy, a 420 place 2FE school.

The proposed Jewell Academy uses vertical timber cladding and engineering brickwork to break up the modular appearance. The  building extension will be built with quality external materials to complement the existing school building and where possible some areas of existing school will be over clad to tie the two developments together and provide an overall coherent design. The new extension will form a back drop to the existing school and will promote the new development and status of the new Academy.
