On Thursday 17 March 2022,  a group of students from the academy – who are currently studying a BTEC Level 2 in Construction And The Built Environment – were invited to visit the construction site of the new additions to Chantry Academy.

Dale Smith (an ex-Westbourne student) from Morgan Sindall Construction was on hand to give a presentation to the students on how a building such as school is completed, from architects’ drawings and an initial proposal, to handing over the keys of a finished suite of classrooms.


The students then had a guided tour around the site, were able to speak to workers from a variety of trades and experience first hand how their previous studies connected to an actual construction.
