About Hackney New School
Hackney New School is an exciting, oversubscribed secondary school, which opened in September 2013. Our aim is to deliver a standard of education that is equal to the very best schools in the country. Our core vision is to provide students with access to the widest range of opportunities in life by fostering academic excellence and instilling self-belief, intellectual curiosity and responsibility towards others in society. Music is at the heart of our school life - every child that joins us learns a musical instrument, there are whole-year choirs, regular concerts, and the majority of students go on to do Music GCSE.
Our objective at Hackney New School is to equip students with the intellectual and emotional tools they need to lead an interesting, rewarding and diverse life. We believe that the four central elements of our core vision are required to achieve this:-
- Academic excellence: we need knowledge to navigate through life
- Self-belief: children must learn to believe in their judgement and their abilities; if they do, they will be able to have full control over their lives
- Intellectual curiosity: everything can be interesting - we believe it is worthwhile regularly to review one’s beliefs and explore new facts, phenomena and points of view
- Responsibility towards others: we share our lives with others, and our liberty and happiness depends on that of other people. We want to remind HNS students’ of this important feature of our lives
In pursuit of this core vision we will encourage our students to consider a number of beliefs and characteristics that we think are naturally supportive of our objectives.
