First floor classrooms are accessed using the schools lift which is maintained by Stanah and has all required emergency facilities. Both stairwells are equipped with Evac Chairs in order to quickly and safely evacuate disabled pupils.
The Academy was rebuilt in 2010 and as such had to meet all new building regulations for disabled facilities. There are four pupil accessible disabled toilets on the ground floor and two adult only facilities. On the first floor there is one disabled access toilet.
In addition to toilet facilities the Academy also has its own manual handling room, where facilities are available to hoist disabled pupils to allow changing.
