RSA Academy has opened three new buildings in the West Midlands, England, that have been designed by John McAslan + Partners.

The £25m ($39m) buildings are connected by a glazed central spine and separated by landscaped courtyards, with internal corridors avoided to preserve space.

Assisted by a £2m ($3m) RSA sponsorship, the academy now facilitates the teaching of 1,100 pupils, including a sixth form centre.

Folding acoustic walls were placed between classrooms to create a flexible and adaptable teaching spaces, according to the architect.

Wilmott Dixon delivered the construction services for the project.
