UCL Academy


The project involves the integration of two special schools and one academy on the Adelaide Road site at Swiss Cottage in North West London. The UCL Academy, the first Academy sponsored by a University, will be a mixed 11-18, 1150 pupil comprehensive school with a maths and science specialism, committed to education excellence. It will reflect the vision of the sponsor in the form of an innovative interdisciplinary curriculum, a ‘hands on’ real world approach to learning, a strong pastoral ethos, a commitment to mentoring and education for global citizenship. There is a very strong commitment across the whole site to sustainability with an overall 60% reduction in energy consumption.
