Three Rivers Academy

MEA and our specialist school’s subsidiary Building Schools for Nothing, worked with multi-academy trust The Howard Partnership Trust (previously Rydens Enterprise School and Sixth Form College) for their redevelopment project in Hersham, to plan and deliver a complex strategy to provide a brand new school without direct funding from local or central government.

The project provided a new 1,878 place (10FE) 11-18 secondary school adjacent to the redundant existing school buildings which were demolished to make way for a housing development. Set over 15,000m2 the school officially opened its doors in February 2018 to staff and students.

The high-quality, spacious learning facility includes drama, dance and music facilities as well as a 6-court sports hall, assembly hall, performance spaces including a studio theatre and drama workshops, together with a full-size 3G artificial pitch and a MUGA.

Following on from completion, Three Rivers Academy has been nominated for several building awards and was the first UK school to have made the shortlist for the final of the World Architecture Festival Awards in the completed schools category.
