A home away from home

We expect that Hackney New School will become a central hub for a wide range of activities available to the entire Hackney community. The school is making it a priority to interact with and benefit the local community and in this way aims to provide a home away from home for parents and pupils alike. Some of the initiatives to bring this vision to life are:

  • A summer school to provide additional educational programs, community development initiatives and adult learning activities
  • Partnership programs with a wide range of private and public sector organisations, including companies, arts groups, universities, international schools, sports clubs, local community groups, etc
  • Outreach programs where HNS pupils get involved in community activities as volunteers
  • Creative collaborations with other local schools (orchestra, choir, drama) leading to public performances
  • Adult learning initiatives and evening classes
  • The HNS Wellbeing Centre as a centre for children with emotional or behavioural difficulties. The Wellbeing Centre is intended to become available to all children across the borough.
