PHILIPS EXETER academy set to open in the next two years
Exeter Academy will become the first UK high school to open within a few years, according to the head of the Exeter School of Business.
Exeter academy has been operating in the UK since the late 1990s.
Its latest move comes in the form of a £30 million plan to build a new campus, to be completed by 2019.
It will be the first high school in the country to open for business within the next 10 years, it is understood.
The Exeter school of business said that as the first school to expand its business and commercial operations, the new premises would be the most technologically advanced in the area.
“We’ve made significant investments in our business and our operations, which is what attracted us to Exeter, and this is the result of our commitment to the growth of our business,” Exeter Head of Business David Gower said.
“Exeter’s strong business and academic reputation means we’re a natural choice to be a world-class academy, and we’ve invested in the new campus to make it as good as it can be.”
Exeter has become a magnet for the world’s best young people.
Exeter is also home to a new science and technology hub that will be open to all students and staff by the end of the year.
A new science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) centre will also open there by the same date.
“There’s so much potential here, and it’s something that’s been missing for so long,” Mr Gower added.
The Exethys centre is expected to open by 2019, and the Exethies academy will open by 2021.
Exeter, which has been ranked second in the World Schools Index, will offer a mix of academic and non-academic courses from 2019.
