A Camden school could be demolished, re-built and expanded because of the planned High Speed 2 Rail route.
Maria Fidelis School, which has 666 pupils between the ages of 11 and 18, is split between two locations.
The lower school is on North Gower Street, but plans have been lodged with Camden Council for all pupils to be relocated to the upper school site on Phoenix Road.
The Phoenix Road school will be demolished and then re-built into a school which accomodates 1,050 pupils, including 300 sixth form students.
Maria Fidelis School, at 34-38 Phoenix Road, was previously called St Aloysius Convent School.

It was originally built in the mid to early nineteenth century, but has since been much-altered.
Transport assessment documents filed by MLM Consulting Engineers note: “The relocation and expansion of the school is due to the construction of HS2 rail link which will run adjacent to the lower school site on North Gower Street.
