Welcome from your chair of Governors.
I have now been involved in the on-going regeneration of King’s Cross for most of my working life and, with two children of my own, I know how important this new school will be to local families.
The governors and members of the Trust are enormously excited about the Academy. We have appointed an outstanding head teacher to lead the school, Mr Emyr Fairburn. He has been teaching and living locally for more than a decade. He and his staff, the parents and their children will have determined and vigorous support from all the governors to establish a happy and friendly school where children are safe, love learning, behave well and succeed.
Our school is part of an inspiring education campus, sharing the building with Frank Barnes School for Deaf Children (an existing, outstanding school), a new community centre and residential apartments. Our desire is to create one of London’s best teaching and learning environments, at the centre of this thriving, new, urban community.
We very much look forward to welcoming you and your child to King’s Cross Academy.
