Willmott Dixon has secured a Â£30+ million contract to build Oxford Academyâ€™s new home on Sandy Lane West, in Oxford.
The project, for Oxfordshire County Council, will provide facilities for up to 1,050 secondary school students and up to 400 sixth form pupils, including a 150-place specialist sports academy and will be built on the grounds of the former Peers School, which was replaced by Oxford Academy in 2008.
Willmotts will also build a special educational needs school on the campus.
The academyâ€™s structure will be a mix of concrete, steel and timber frame and the existing school will be refurbished to blend with the new buildings.
The entire project is scheduled to be completed by autumn 2011.
