School Description

Hackney New School is a free school, established in 2013. It is part of the Hackney New Schools Trust. The other school in the trust is Hackney New Primary School. The board of trustees acts as the governing body for both schools. Following two years in temporary accommodation, the school moved to its current buildings in September 2015. The 2018 Year 11 cohort were the first Hackney New School pupils to sit public examinations. The school has experienced four changes of headteacher since the last full inspection in 2015. In June 2018, a section 8 Ofsted inspection identified that the school was declining. In March 2019, the board invited the EKO trust in Newham to support the school. Subsequently, the Department for Education agreed that the EKO trust would take over responsibility for the school from 1 November 2019. The permanent headteacher left the school suddenly on 20 June 2019. At that point, Inspection report: Hackney New School, 4–5 July 2019 Page 7 of 10 EKO leaders recognised that, as a primary trust, it did not have the resources available to provide the intervention needed. Consequently, leaders from the Community Schools Trust, also from Newham, agreed to work in partnership with EKO. In the absence of a permanent headteacher, Hackney New School is currently managed by a team of consultants from the EKO and Community Schools trusts. The school does not use any alternative provision. However, on the second day of the inspection, a small group of pupils were taken off-site in preparation for transfer to an alternative provider the following week.

This School Guide heat map has been plotted using official pupil data taken from the last School Census collected by the Department for Education. It is a visualisation of where pupils lived at the time of the annual School Census.

Our heat maps use groups of postcodes, not individual postcodes, and have naturally soft edges. All pupils are included in the mapping (i.e. children with siblings already at the school, high priority pupils and selective and/or religious admissions) but we may have removed statistical ‘outliers’ with more remote postcodes that do not reflect majority admissions.

For some schools, the heat map may be a useful indicator of the catchment area but our heat maps are not the same as catchment area maps. Catchment area maps, published by the school or local authority, are based on geographical admissions criteria and show actual cut-off distances and pre-defined catchment areas for a single admission year.

This information is provided as a guide only. The areas from which pupils are admitted to a school can change from year to year to reflect the number of siblings and pupils admitted under high priority admissions criteria.

3 steps to help parents gather catchment information for a school:

  1. Look at our school catchment area guide for more information on heat maps. They give a useful indicator of the general areas that admit pupils to the school. This visualisation is based on all attending pupils present at the time of the annual School Census.
  2. Use the link to the Local Authority Contact (above) to find catchment area information based on a single admission year. This is very important if you are considering applying to a school.
  3. On each school page, use the link to visit the school website and find information on individual school admissions criteria. Geographical criteria are only applied after pupils have been admitted on higher priority criteria such as Looked After Children, SEN, siblings, etc.
