A new free school planned for Alperton will now open in September in Colindale.
Floreat Colindale Primary School will initially be based in temporary accommodation before moving into a new development in Edgware Road, which was formerly the Oriental City shopping centre.
It plans to move to its permanent base in 2018.
Managed by Floreat Education Academies Trust, the school will be available for up to two-form entry initially.
Janet Hilary, Floreat CEO, said: “We are very excited that Brent Council has been able to secure us such a fantastic site in Colindale.
