Our son is LOVING the HNS music sessions and LOVING the school!
HNS parent
No other job is as rewarding as teaching. I am passionate about supporting each student to fulfil their individual potential and am a firm believer in HNS’s personalised learning plans.
Jayne Voice, SENCO
Hackney New School is small and friendly and I’ll have lots of support to get my work done at school.
HNS student
It is a huge honour to be involved with HNS from the start. Nowhere quite offers such unique and inspiring opportunities for both pupils and teachers.
Ben Clemson, Assistant Head and Subject Leader (History)
I chose Hackney New School because I love music and want to learn a new instrument.
HNS student
I was inspired to join Hackney New School because it places music at the centre of the school. Music can help pupils be better teamworkers, communicators and participants - all essential skills in society.
Rachel Barnes, Director of Music
