Goodwin Academy-Mill Road Site

Our Key Stage 3 students are currently educated on the Mill Road site. The main school building surrounds garden quads, each with a different character. This one-level building houses lessons in English, Mathematics, Humanities, Science, Music and Computing. Additionally, the Specialist Resourced Provision for Speech, Language and Communication Needs has its office here, as does the Intervention Team for KS3. Drama lessons are held in the Theatre, enhanced by professional lighting and sound equipment and a large stage for our well-loved community productions.

The Technology block has spacious and well-equipped rooms for learning about Textiles, Resistant Materials, Graphics and Art. A purpose-built Dance Studio and a fifth science laboratory are to be found in this same location, opposite a second Art room and the home of the Nurture group in Year 7. The Gym, Changing Rooms and Astroturf are located close-by, the latter being a firm, daily favourite with our students for releasing some energy!

Food Technology rooms are located in the Lawton Block, where many youngsters from local primary schools join us each year to hone their cooking skills. Adjacent to these are the SEND office and Green Room, where students may receive dedicated support to meet their needs and the Student Services Centre, which houses a number of different provisions for all students, whatever their specific need at the time. The Learning Support Centre is located next door to the Hamilton playground, providing a series of targeted interventions for children with SEND throughout the day.

Goodwin Academy-Salisbury Road Site

All Key Stage 4 and 5 students are educated on The Salisbury Road Site. In addition to the main building, there are four external buildings. The Compass Centre is home to mathematics and English and the Performing Arts block hosts dance, drama and music lessons. Technology lessons are based in the Maritime Centre with specialist resistant material and engineering equipment. There is also the Phoenix Centre which is a provision that assists students in need of additional support.

Students also benefit from a wide range of specialist resources and equipment in the main building. There are 5 purpose built science laboratories, a large sports hall, fitness suite along with food technology, art, graphics and textiles facilities plus classrooms for humanities and languages. In addition, there are also 9 ICT classrooms and a media suite with over 20 Apple Mac PCs.

The Sixth Form facilities include a Study Centre and Common Room, plus their very own Wi-Fi network. The Resourced Provision Unit recently re-designated as a Speech, Language and Communication Needs provision is also housed in the main building.
