Admissions for Camden’s first primary academy school at the heart of a multi-billion pound development have been opened for applications.

The King’s Cross Academy, which won approval from the Department for Education (DfE) in March, is now accepting applications for up to 60 reception places for four and five-year-olds from September 2015.

The school, which will also house a nursery for 26 three to five-year-olds, hopes to eventually expand to take in 420 children aged four to 11.

The Frank Barnes School for Deaf Children, which is currently in a temporary home in Camley Street, King’s Cross, will share the academy’s Plimsoll Building in the King’s Cross Central development.

Emyr Fairburn, former deputy headteacher of Thornhill Primary School in Barnsbury, Islington, has been appointed as the academy’s first headteacher.

He said: “I am enormously proud to be the founding headteacher of the new academy at which our aim is for every child to become a highly successful learner.”

The deadline for applications is January. Families can apply through Camden Council’s admissions department at 5 Pancras Square, London N1C 4AG or go online at eadmissions.org.uk.
