Our Vision

City of London Primary Academy Islington opened in September 2017. The school will be in temporary accommodation until December 2020 while the permanent school is being built on the old Richard Cloudesley School site, to the north of the Golden Lane Estate. COLPAI is a non-selective, fully inclusive school. Pupils are drawn from and reflect the local community and, with the exception of looked after children and siblings, places are allocated by distance.
