The proposed design for the town's new 0 to 19s Academy will be unveiled in two further locations in mid-March
The plans will be displayed in the: John Moulton Hall (Penhill Library) on March 14 and
Gorse Hill Community Centre on March 15.
Representatives of Swindon Borough Council and the United Learning Trust (ULT) will be on hand to answer any questions about the design, and members of the public are welcome to submit any comments between 3pm and 7pm on each day.
The plans for an academy to replace Headlands Secondary School on the Pinehurst Primary School site, involving a religious based organisation, has been controversial. However Swindon Council has agreed to go ahead with the project.
Cllr Garry Perkins, Cabinet Member for Children Services, said: "There was an overwhelmingly positive response to the plans when they were unveiled in Pinehurst. People from across Swindon visited the event and were very excited about them. We want everyone to have the chance to see the design and felt it was wise to hold further events for those who did not make it to Pinehurst, so don't miss this opportunity and come and tell us what you think."
The draft design has been created following extensive consultations held last summer. It will be built on a site in Pinehurst, with a proposed main entrance point in Beech Avenue.
The proposed building is a cutting edge design providing state-of-the-art facilities, including a theatre, media suites, science laboratories, workshops and games areas.
It is expected to cater for pupils aged 4-19, whilst a new Sure Start facility will be available on site for younger children. Different age groups will have their own entrances, recreation areas and separate break times.
Martyn Baker, United Learning Trust's National Education Adviser and Swindon Project Manager, said: "The first two events were a great success – lots of people came to see the models and designs and hear about the facilities planned for the new Academy.
"A lot of work has been done and there is a great deal more to do. It is really important that local people are involved. We want this building to be an excellent place for local children to learn and a fantastic resource for the whole community."
The site is currently home to the Pinehurst People's Centre and other groups. Services at the centre are to be relocated from September this year. Separate discussions are taking place with these groups about this.
The Academy is expected to be open in the new building in September 2009.
