The unique ‘horseshoe’ shaped Sandwell Academy is an all-ability school for the future which opened its doors in 2006 thanks to a £27 million investment from a range of sponsors including The Thomas Telford School, The Mercers’ Company, HSBC Education Trust, West Bromwich Albion FC, Tarmac Group Ltd, Sandwell MBC and the Department for Education and Skills.

The new school will specialise in sport and business enterprise from its base in Halfords Lane, West Bromwich, opposite one of its sponsors, West Bromwich Albion FC. Lakesmere was contracted to design and install the roofing package and elements of the cladding works around the scheme.
