Leigh Academy Blackheath will be opening at Victoria House, once the officers’ mess and living quarters for the Royal Army Medical Corps staff of the neighbouring Royal Herbert Hospital. With planning permission agreed, building work will begin at the end April to transform the building and grounds ready for the arrival of our founding students in September 2018.
The site will be cleared ready for the contractors to move in and the grounds developed to create our recreation space and multi purpose games area (MUGA).
Please find below a very simple plan showing the agreed development of the ground floor space. As we only require this area during our founding year the top floor will be completely sealed off during the building work.
