Find a sixth form or college

Post 16 education in Hackney

We provide information about Hackney school sixth forms and colleges with links to their websites and prospectuses. 

Applications for places at Hackney's school sixth forms and colleges should be made directly to the school or college. Applications for places at Special Schools should go via the Special Educational Needs Team on 020 8820 7326. Applications generally open in the autumn term for courses starting the following September.

Although you are required to participate in education or training until you are 18 you do not have to remain in school. Find out more.

Most of our school sixth forms have high entry requirements. Colleges may have lower requirements or offer courses that will prepare you for A level study. If you are unlikely to achieve 5 or more GCSEs at grades A* to C you may like to see our directory of alternative pathways which has information about a range of courses and apprenticeships at local colleges and providers.

Open days for 2020 applicants

While we endeavour to ensure accuracy, please note that open days can be subject to change so we strongly recommend re-checking the details nearer the time of the event.

Selecting the right course for you

For help with selecting the right type of course you might like to look at the UCAS website. Some Hackney schools and colleges also list their courses there. However, this site is not controlled by Hackney Education so we recommend you check with your chosen institutions the availability of your preferred courses and current application details.

The National Careers Service provides useful information too. You can access support with your decision making via webchat or telephone.

If you would like personalised help with choosing what and where to study please speak to your school careers adviser or see other careers advice available in Hackney.

You may be eligible for some additional funding to help you study.
