Red Kite Academy
Red Kite Academy, which is located where Beanfields College in Corby used to be, is a beautiful school for a hundred pupils with additional educational needs. Including the normal educational provisions, Red Kite Academy also includes a hydrotherapy pool, sensory suite, and a studio flat to help pupils prepare for an independent life.
The single storey building is designed to be flexible and adaptable, allowing the ability to accept pupils of all ranges of additional needs. This includes those on the autism spectrum, severe and multiple learning difficulties and mobility impairments. The building itself has two wings, which contain the main hall, hydrotherapy and physiotherapy suites. The long corridor running down the length of the school provides access for all pupils, no matter the level of mobility. There are also individual entrances to all classrooms, giving pupils direct access to the landscape.
A project that was exceptionally delivered on time and to budget with a delighted client is a testament to the dedication of the Ashe team to meet the clients deliverables.
