I am delighted to invite you to consider The City Academy, Hackney as your preferred choice of secondary school for your child.

In 2014, our students made more academic progress than in any other school in London. In fact, the attainment of our students in their GCSEs demonstrated the best progress of any co-educational secondary school in the country as a whole. In addition, we have received two ‘Outstanding’ grades from Ofsted; judged to be ‘Outstanding’ in every category twice.

When we were established in 2009 our aim was to build a ‘world class’ academy for our students based on the highest expectations.
