Academy Facilities & Services

Madeley Academy reopened its doors in September 2009 with a brand new, state of the art building that is fully equipped to aid students and teachers in teaching and learning.

The building is light and airy, and is equipped with an underfloor heating system, air conditioning and automated windows to maintain a comfortable working temperature all year round for students. 

Specialist Teaching Areas

Madeley Academy is extremely lucky to benefit from state of the art specialist subject teaching areas. The site consists of 12 ICT suites, a training kitchen, hair & beauty salon, construction environment, Music Technology suite and CADCAM room. The building also benefits from a cutting-edge theatre facility for assemblies, presentations and shows.

Safety & Security

Student & Staff safety is of paramount importance to us. The site is protected by over 150 high quality CCTV Cameras, PAXTON access control and a 24/7 Security Gatehouse where all access is controlled and the site is monitored by IT Services, Behaviour Managers and the Gatehouse.  

Sports Facilities

Students have access to a state of the art fitness centre complete with treadmills, stepper machines, weights, and an electronic "Wellness System" by Technogym, that is available for student and staff use. Within our grounds, we are also lucky to have a 3G all weather pitch, state of the art fitness centre (Gym), sportshall, football pitches, netball courts, tennis courts, athletics running track and rugby pitch.

Madeley Academy benefits from 2 restaurants, the main restaurant and a VTC Café dedicated to our 6th Form students. A wide range of meal options are available to purchase for Staff & Students at both break and lunch times. Cash and Card payments are accepted. Students also have access to 2 football cages, basketball and table tennis during recreation time.

Computer & Media Services

Staff & Students benefit from an in house Computer & Media Services Department who deliver a prompt and effective IT support service via a single point of contact. The department is tasked with maintaining the school's data, telephony, security and audio-visual infrastructure and all associated IT equipment. Support is available all year round from our dedicated IT Office and we continue to invest in the latest hardware and software solutions to aid teaching and learning.
