About Stoke Newington School and Sixth Form

Welcome to Stoke Newington School – a vibrant, diverse and inclusive school delivering excellence for all. We are at the heart of our local community in North Hackney and strive to provide an inspirational learning journey for every student. We believe that all our young people have the potential to achieve in school and succeed in life. We ensure that students flourish at our school regardless of their starting point or individual circumstance. We have a culture rooted in high expectations for all, which cultivates a love of learning and ambition for success, together with a strong sense of belonging and civic duty.

Our teachers and support staff are creative, skilled and committed professionals, who work tirelessly to improve the outcomes for all our students. We have a strong focus on creativity in our classrooms. We believe everyone has creative capacities and know that creativity is the skill of the future. Our students past and present are strong evidence of our success. We are proud of their academic progress, sporting achievements, musical performances, drama productions and many have successfully achieved places at Russell Group universities, leading Art schools and high quality apprenticeships. Our year on year improvement at GCSE and A level reflects our strong commitment to continually evolve and deliver on our pledge to provide a great education for all.

We recognise that every young person is different and deserving of success. We have high expectations of behaviour to allow everyone to thrive and succeed. We place a strong emphasis on primary-secondary transition and recognise this moment can be both exciting and daunting for students and their parents. We pride ourselves on our compassionate pastoral care and environment of kindness. Many of our students choose to stay with us at Sixth Form, one of the largest in Hackney.

I hope our website has given you an insight into our school and encourage you to visit.

I look forward to welcoming you.
