Our Story

Classroom at King's Cross Academy Primary School

An extraordinary part of London is taking shape at King’s Cross. The area, with all its heritage and history, is being transformed into a thriving new place with a growing and diverse community.

At the heart of this exciting change is the new King’s Cross Academy – a new, purpose-built primary school that offers a unique opportunity for your child to make the most of his or her potential.

Located in the Plimsoll Building, the Academy opened in September 2015. It is provides for 420 primary school pupils aged 4 to 11, plus a 26 place nursery.

King’s Cross Academy was developed and is being run by the same people who are behind the wider King’s Cross regeneration. Our goal is to give our pupils the best possible education and access to opportunities, so they leave primary school with the competence, skills and confidence to succeed at secondary school and beyond.

Our children are part of something very special
