School Grounds

snug Our school is situated in an enviable location opposite the beautiful St Pancras Station, just behind King's Cross Library and Camden Town Hall. Though close to the Euston Road, Tonbridge Street is a quiet residential area that enables the school to feel protected from the hustle and bustle surrounding it.

The school itself is a Victorian building built over four floors with a dedicated Early Years Centre and specialist Music and ICT suites. Our rooms are spacious and well resourced.

We have three playgrounds, an enclosed nursery play area, a wildlife garden and a small roof garden. Though compact, our open spaces are incredibly important to us and we invest in their upkeep and take steps to ensure that they are used to enhance learning across the school.

 The teaching of Science is well supported by our 'Sci-hi' house and by the enclosed  pond and wildlife garden.

School Garden

Hidden away within the school grounds, visitors are frequently amazed by our tranquil garden area. Over the past few years we have developed the garden so that it has become well established within our curriculum. Children learn about sustainability and have the opportunity to grow and harvest their own vegetables including potatoes, tomatoes, beans and swiss chard. We have invested in a polytunnel to enable plants less resistant to the local climate to be grown.
