Thank you for visiting our website, where you should find lots of information about our small and friendly school. We have been rated as ‘outstanding’ again by Ofsted and have a national and international reputation as a centre of excellence for deaf education. Children from across Greater London and from many different backgrounds attend our school from the age of 2 – 11.
We have a bilingual philosophy which means that we teach using both British Sign Language (BSL), the language of the Deaf community, and English, the language of the hearing community. We value these languages equally and want our children to be competent in both.
We have now settled into our wonderful new school. All of the classes are bright and spacious and fitted out with brand new furniture and the latest technology, including Soundfield systems. They all have amazing views over the Regent Canal, Kings Cross and London! The children really enjoy their new learning environment. We look forward to seeing you all again at our joint Frank Barnes and Kings Cross Academy ‘International Summer Fair’ on Friday 7th July, from 6pm to 9pm.
You can view the latest photos of the school here.

We are very excited to have Chris Fonseca teaching us dance in our PE lessons this half term. Chris is a professional dancer who you may recognise from a recent TV advert and youtube. Chris is also deaf and so is a great example of what we can achieve if we work hard.
“Frank Barnes supports parents with their communication skills enabling children to continue their learning at home which is invaluable. ” Parent
