Lettings at Watling Academy

The Denbigh Alliance Multi-Academy Trust is committed to opening up the facilities at Watling Academy for external lettings, in order to support and develop the Academy’s position at the heart of its local community.

We have facilities to enable us to host a wide range of events and clubs, run by groups and individuals from across the Milton Keynes community.

Our state-of-the-art Sports facilities are available to hire to local community groups and businesses outside of school hours. Our current operating hours are from 5.45pm to 9.00pm, Monday to Friday, and 8:00am to 4:00pm on Saturdays.

Current Hirers

We currently hire out our facilities to a diverse range of users, including sports clubs, fitness teachers, dance teachers, football teams, Korfball, volleyball and the local Scout Group.

4G Pitch

Our 4G pitch is available for ad hoc and regular hire. We are also able to provide flood lighting, so the pitch can be used year-round. The full-size pitch can be divided into three cross pitches, for smaller team matches and training.

Ideal for use for dance and fitness classes, these spaces have a maximum capacity of 100 people.
