School set to net state-of-the-art new sports centre
Published on 05/12/17
Students at Cromer Academy are set to benefit from a multi-million-pound investment in new sports facilities.
The school is working in partnership with North Norfolk Council and the Lawn Tennis Association to create a new North Norfolk Community Sports Hub in Cromer.
The £2.6m project will provide state-of-the-art facilities for the school and community, including three indoor tennis courts, gym, and fitness studio.
Councillors have given their initial backing to the plans, with the proposals due for a further hearing at the full council meeting later this month.
If the plans get the go-ahead, the hub should be completed by the middle of 2019.
Cromer Academy principal Dr Geoff Baker said: "These are fantastic and creative proposals that will make a lasting difference both to our pupils and the wider community.
"Sport is already a really important part of life at Cromer Academy and this investment will give our young people even more opportunities to take part both as individual players and in teams, and develop key social and leadership skills."
