Hackney Education provides a range of services to support the education of children, young people and adults in our inner London borough.

Hackney is one of the UK’s highest performing local authorities, serving one of London’s best places to live and work.

Within our diverse borough we serve a wide range of children and young people.

We have a particular focus on supporting less advantaged families: Hackney figures in the 10% most deprived boroughs in England on a number of measures.

Hackney Education’s key priority is to improve the life chances of every child, young person and learner: making Hackney the most forward looking education system in the UK, where schools, settings and partners provide an exciting environment which ensures inclusion and success for everyone.

We see our borough as being one of the best places in the country for young people to grow, learn, develop and achieve – and one of the best places for colleagues to work and thrive in our education system.
