Frank Barnes School for Deaf Children is currently located in the Jubilee Waterside Centre, but will be moving to a new home in The Plimsoll Building, in September 2015.
The school will be co-located with a new mainstream primary school, King’s Cross Academy. The multi-million pound new building will provide a state-of-the-art learning environment.
The two schools will share not just a building, but enjoy a close partnership at all levels. The Academy will teach British Sign Language and shared spaces will give the children the chance to mix.
