Forster Academy, Bradford
In response to pressures caused by an increase in population, Forster Academy was commissioned as a completely new Seven Form of Entry (7FE) secondary school.
The school embodies the principles of Wates Construction’s ‘Adapt Schools Solution’, delivering an efficient and effective, high-quality learning and teaching environment. The new facility accommodates 1,050 pupils and is aligned with the government’s agenda for basic need provision.

The accommodation is predominantly provided over two storeys, with a partial three--storey element, minimising the footprint on the site and maximising the efficiency of the construction. The building form creates a series of semi-enclosed courtyard spaces providing both social and learning environments.
A separate sports facility block is adjacent to the new academy and includes a four-court multipurpose hall, activity studio and changing facilities that can be used by the local community subject to academy policies.
