The Academy

Welcome to Skinners’ Academy, a school in the Woodberry Down (North Hackney) community for pupils aged 11–19, providing a world class education in a state-of-the-art building. Specialising in Enterprise, the Academy opened in 2010 and is supported by the Skinners’ Company, who is proud of the Academy being at the heart and hub of the local community. In September 2015 we launched our aspirational, high achieving Sixth Form.

The Academy's learning environment is inspiring, exciting and motivating. Therefore, with your contribution, we will challenge and support their paths to success. In addition, wellbeing is a priority for the Academy both in terms of students and staff, which is one of the many reasons why the Academy is considered a great place to work.

We hope you enjoy looking around our website, designed to be a hub of information for all.
