UCL Academy to proceed
6 August 2010
UCL is delighted to receive confirmation that the UCL
Academy project will proceed on the Swiss Cottage site in Camden.
We have put
an enormous amount of effort and development time into our proposals, and very
much look forward to continuing to work with Camden Council and with BAM to
deliver an outstanding school.
We are still working to an opening date of 2011 and will make more information available to parents on our website in the next few weeks.
Professor Michael Worton, Vice-Provost (Academic and International), said: "We at UCL are delighted that we have finally been given the green light for the Academy with all the requested capital allocated to us. We are also delighted that South Camden Special School and South Camden Community School have been given the go ahead, as we will be sharing the same campus in Swiss Cottage and working closely with them, and, of course, we have a long history of working with South Camden Community School."
