Camden is to get its first primary academy school in King’s Cross after winning approval from the Department for Education (DfE).

The two-form entry school is due to open in 2016 and will be within the King’s Cross Central development.

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

The two schools will work closely together to share resources.

Camden Council required the school to be built as part of a 2006 agreement between the local authority and developers King’s Cross Central Limited Partnership, but the academy has only just won approval from the DfE.

Cllr Angela Mason, cabinet member for children, said: “I am pleased that approval has been given to progress work with the new King’s Cross school.”
