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.
