Caroline Nash is working with Principal Designate of Pimlico Primary, Annaliese Briggs, and TCC to prepare the content to be taught to the Pimlico Primary pupils.

Annaliese Briggs commented: “This is excellent news for the many local families who have been demanding an increased provision in high quality education. I will be contacting everyone who has expressed an interest in sending their child to Pimlico Primary and look forward to welcoming our new pupils in Reception in September 2013.”

Once opened, Pimlico Primary will be the latest addition to the Future academies portfolio which includes Pimlico Academy and Millbank Academy. Pimlico Academy was the first of the Future Academies and opened in September 2008.
