If you want to be the best, then you should probably join us

Students in our academy made more progress than in any other school in Hackney and made the best progress of any co-educational school in the country in 2014. In 2015 and 2016, students made exceptional progress with a Progress 8 score above 1.00, one of only seven schools in the country to achieve this. That is great news for our students, the academy and our community, but there is so much more that we know can be achieved and you can help.

We have a relentless ambition to deliver continuing success to the young people we serve. Our approach is based on very simple principles: clear systems and extremely high expectations. We focus on the development of our students, their values and ultimately their academic success. We maximise the impact of teaching by providing clear leadership, minimising bureaucracy, and effective support that have tangible results on the quality of teaching and outcomes for our students.

  • To lead and support both academic and pastoral mentoring
  • To ensure that the code of conduct of all students are in line with the school expectations
  • To support learners aged 14-19 to acquire the skills and knowledge to succeed in completing their chosen course
