What our students say

Skinners' Academy Hackney sixth form


“The educational trips offered by the sixth form are excellent. They introduce us to different environments that are related to our subjects and help us to expand our knowledge”.

Tomiwa Akingbade, Year 13


“My highlight of sixth form so far has been the Art trip to the Institute of Education. Being in a lecture hall environment helped me to understand what it will be like to be a university student. It was a fantastic experience!”.

Melisa Atim, Year 13


“So far, being in the sixth form has been hard work but really rewarding. The subjects I have chosen are interesting and really enjoyable. I can’t wait to continue learning new things”.

Tolu Adisa, Year 13


“The sixth form is really good. The lessons I have chosen are interesting and engaging, Economics in particular is very enjoyable”.

Tosin Ejibade, Year 13


“All sixth form students have been privileged with a large space we can work independently in.

I like that all the facilities I need have been made available for me to use when I need them”.

Jaswinder Kaur, Year 13


“As a new student joining the sixth form, I thought it would be hard to build new relationships but the teachers and other students have been really helpful.

I am really enjoying life at Skinners’ and don’t regret coming here”.

Nakasha Morton-Pindling, Year 13


“A-Level is only the start; just know it takes some time and effort to be successful”.

Brando Williams, Year 13


“I got a lot of support by highly qualified and dedicated teachers, who were always willing to give up their weekends and holidays for exam revision. They always pushed me to do my best so that I get the grades required to attend a Russell Group University; and I actually got there! Subject teachers are brilliant and always committed in what they’re doing for you…

“Skinners’ has a really special diversity and I will miss that, as well as all the extra-curricular activities we had!”

Skinners’ Academy’s Sixth Form is not only good when it comes down to learning, achieving the best grades and teacher-student support but also its great in a sense where we have the opportunity to take part in amazing projects and events. I had the opportunity to be part of a project with the Ideas Foundation, an employability programme ‘Rep London’ and participating in a Women in Leadership Conference. Being a part of these projects gave me the opportunity to explore and gain essential key values.
