Location and Buildings
Upwood Primary Academy was built upon its present site in 1960, moving from its original location in the centre of the village of Upwood.
The building provides generous accommodation which includes large teaching areas all with their own practical work areas; a large hall and separate dining area, library, reading areas and school offices.
At the front of the school, there is a large play area which is used as a netball court and general all weather hard court games area. To the rear of the building there is an enclosed split-level courtyard, complete with flower beds, picnic benches, shrubbery and lavender garden; an ideal quiet retreat from the bustle of the playground.
Beyond the courtyard is the heated learner pool and playing field, with running track, football pitch and Millennium Willow Dome.
At the far end of the building is an environmental area planted as meadow land, adding both colour and educational interest to our surroundings.
