Hackney Teaching and Schools' Alliance


The Hackney Teaching and Schools' Alliance is a supportive partnership of primary, secondary and specialist schools, each with a proven track record of successful improvement.

Our alliance is steered by an executive board comprised of four schools, two of which are national teaching schools; Clapton Girls’ Academy and Kingsmead Primary school. Along with Stormont House (National Support School) and Millfields Community School, we work to improve the quality of teaching and leadership through effective collaboration and personalised support.

We are proud to partner with Empathy Animals, a fantastic organisation whose mission is to promote, encourage and develop empathy, well-being and communication skills in children through therapy-trained animals.
