The Hive Facilities


The Hive is managed by Burnage Academy For Boys and provides both short-term and on-going support to students from not only Burnage Academy but other secondary schools in the local area. The building was opened in 2012 and has underfloor heating and ventilation systems, disabled facilities, full CCTV and access to IT facilities (subject to BAFB approval).

Rooms (and the Centre as a whole) are available for hire, subject to availability and at the discretion of the Hive Manager, who can be contacted via the main school.

Facilities available include:

Social Area

This area contains room for up to 24 people in a
more informal setting than the classroom offers. It
also has a desktop computer and interactive whiteboard. This area is unavailable during
off-peak hours (see lettings policy for details).

Private Consulting Room

This room can be used for one-to-one meetings.

Meeting Room

This smaller room can accommodate up to
8 people.


The kitchen is equipped with a fridge/freezer, kettle, toaster and microwave, and is available for use for a small additional charge. There is a serving hatch which provides easy access to the social area.


The main classroom caters for up to 20 people
and furniture can be arranged to suit either smaller groups or a larger meeting. The room is equipped
with a desktop computer, which is connected to
an interactive whiteboard with integrated speakers. The room also contains a sink and fridge, and is covered by CCTV.
