A warm welcome to Hackney New School

As Headteacher, it is a great pleasure to welcome you to Hackney New School’s website.

HNS is a small school which offers a personalised, warm and exceptional academic and creative education for students from 11-16.

Charlotte Whelan, Head Teacher

With a strong focus on academic outcomes, student well-being and music, HNS is on course to become the first choice for students and parents in Hackney.

As experienced school leaders, myself and my team know what makes a school successful and we go the extra mile to ensure children are happy and achieving. We expect students to work hard and be kind. Visitors to the school are always very welcome and remark on the HNS values which they see in every area of school life.

As Headteacher of a small school, I have found that I am in the privileged position of being able to know each and every child and their families. This gives my team and I the ability to support students in every area of their learning and provide parents with meaningful and timely feedback regularly.

I hope you find this website useful and I look forward to meeting you, whether you are a parent, student, teacher or visitor.
