A new primary school under construction in Kent's £34m Garden City will unveil its campus plans this month.
Ebbsfleet Green Primary School is inviting parents to view its vision for the education of their children at a consultation event.
The academy, based on the new Garden City Estate, will accommodate more than 400 pupils when it opens in September.
It forms part of the of the Maritime Academy Trust, an educational charity catering for kids aged 3-11 across eight primary schools based in London and Kent.
A public consultation will take place at the Eastgate Centre in Springhead Parkway, Northfleet, from 4pm until 8pm on Tuesday February 25.
Ebbsfleet Green will serve the new residents of the estate where there are already more than 400 homes built and occupied.
It is being introduced in phases with temporary structures before the full building is erected in September 2021.
When finished it will become the second new primary school to open on the garden settlement after Cherry Orchard Primary Academy in 2017.
A third academy to be built on the Springhead Park development near Gravesend was also announced last year.
Parents will be able to discuss the school with Head Teacher Joanne Wilkinson-Tabi and Maritime CEO Nick Osborne.
Refreshments will be available as well as art activities to keep youngsters entertained.
Ms Wilkinson-Tabi will be taking on the role next September in addition to continuing her existing duties at Greenacres Primary in Eltham.
The head teacher, who has been involved in the education sector for 25 years, is looking forward to meeting parents and making "Ebbsfleet Green the number one choice for families".
Speaking last year she said:"I can’t wait to get to know my new community and discover the talents of local children."
"At Maritime we embrace collaboration, critical thinking and creativity so if you want your children to be the thinkers and creators of tomorrow, please join us at the cheese and wine evening and other forthcoming events."
Community Engagement Lead at Maritime Academy Trust Kathryn Jackman, commented: “We are thrilled to share with the future families of Ebbsfleet Green Primary School our vision for the school and the pupils’ education – we can’t wait to see these plans become a reality.
"We have many more exciting events coming up which we hope North Kent residents will be able to attend, including an environmentally friendly family picnic later this year.”
