Cardinal Pole Catholic School is a comprehensive, mixed, 11-18 oversubscribed school. The school has exceptional facilities and was the most improved Hackney school at both GCSE and A Level in 2018. At GCSE our results continue to improve Year on Year and have done so for the past five years. It has many exceptional results for both departments and individual students with above national average in English, Maths and science. Progress measures continue to be very positive. 

Our A level results continue to be amongst the best in the country with an ALPS 1 for progress (top 1% nationally). The school was delighted to secure 100% pass rate for all students and 18% A*-A, 54% A*-B, 88% A*-C and 97% A*-D, a significant increase on last year's high achievement. A third of students secured places in Russell Group Universities including Oxbridge with many more moving on to other top universities.

Our most recent inspection in October 2016 from the Diocese of Westminster graded the school as outstanding in every category. The report commented that our ‘distinctive inclusive ethos of this school is tangible in every area of school life from classroom to corridors and in relationships between students and staff’ and described progress as outstanding.  Importantly, it described the school as a ‘safe place that allows all to flourish’ and a place where ‘Students make outstanding progress’. The 2017 OFSTED praised the work of the school.

Applicants will be joining a stable department and school committed to supporting professional development.
