We are absolutely thrilled to be able to share the exciting news regarding our new premises which are due for completion mid-to-late 2020. We have been working with the developers of the new Shredded Wheat Quarter in Welwyn Garden City and have agreed upon having 3 dance studios, 2 music practice rooms and one recording studio as well as other essentials including a kitchen, toilets, cloakroom and a comfortable waiting area within our new premises which will become a hub for the performing arts. With fully equipped studios including sprung floors, mirrors and barres and a recording studio and practice rooms kitted out with all of the essentials, we know this will be an incredible place to learn and flourish!
FOR STUDENTS: On top of the amazing facilities that they will be able to learn in, we’re also providing a student lounge where students from approximately school year 5, will be able to relax between classes and enjoy some down time. There’ll be a work station within the student lounge as well as a vanity unit area, comfy seating and beanbags as well as two changing cubicles. Of course, students are expected to respect this space and we’ll have some basic rules in place to ensure this remains a lovely area that all can enjoy.
FOR PARENTS: We haven’t forgotten about parents either! We know that parents can spend many hours waiting around for their children whilst in classes so we’re making sure that we have a comfortable, family friendly area for you to sit, relax and enjoy. Internal plans regarding exactly how the space will be used are still being finalised but we have lots of exciting plans and ideas, plus, you can always pop out to one of the many local amenities including coffee shops, restaurants and don’t forget a bit of retail therapy… what more could you want? 😁
THE LOCAL SURROUNDINGS: We feel extremely fortunate to be able to run our academy from the heart of this regeneration project for the Shredded Wheat site in Welwyn Garden City. The area will be packed with plenty to do and plenty to see! There will be a beautiful sensory garden, a museum and art gallery as well as restaurants and retail available. All of this makes for a lovely setting and adds to the full experience of being a CPA family. We know that this area will be a beautiful setting for our growing academy.
FUNDRAISING: We are working on fundraising packs which will be ready for the start of the academic year 2019 to 2020. Within this we will have lots of fundraising events plus ways that you can sponsor and donate towards the new premises.
