Four-year-olds set to join the new Wembley Academy in September could start their schooldays in a run-down building with no heating.
The clubhouse at Wembley Park Sports Ground would become a classroom for 60 reception-age children who are due to join the academy in temporary buildings next term if work to construct the school on the Bridge Road site is not completed.
Councillor Bob Wharton (Liberal Democrat), responsible for education, said: "If the buildings are delivered late,and it's pretty tight, we would use the clubhouse for the initial start-up.
"It's not ideal but if it happened it would only be for a matter of weeks."
The building, which has neither hot water nor heating, is set to be demolished if a planning application for a permanent 1,600-pupil academy is passed next year.
Last month (June 23), council staff told tenants, including the Sunflower Nursery,a car wash and a church, that they must vacate the site by July 31 to allow temporary building construction to begin in August.
Peter Moring, who maintains the site's football pitches to provide cheap coaching for youngsters, was told he must now leave the work to Brent Council's parks department, who will also be responsible for taking bookings from teams.
He said: "I was told I would be able to look after the pitches for the next two years but it has come to nothing.
"It's been nothing but lies, lies, lies and I'm worried I will now have to pay the council more than I was before to use the pitches to train the children."
Mr Wharton said the council was helping to find new premises for the Sunflower Nursery,which was rated as 'good' by Ofsted.
