At The City Academy, Hackney students are expected to work hard and to show dedication and commitment to their studies. In return, the academy provides fantastic academic, creative, sporting, linguistic, and personal educational experiences. This ‘City Experience’ is delivered through our outstanding teaching, the formal and informal curriculum, and the support of City of London Academies Trust. Of key importance to our success has been the development of students’ originality and independent thinking, which has been fostered through the many creative and engaging learning experiences we offer inside and outside the classroom.
