Welcome to Halley House School, a friendly one-form entry primary free school, in Hackney (Dalston), East London.

We pride ourselves on offering a very broad, well-balanced and deeply rich curriculum, with a sharp focus on teaching children the skills and knowledge they need to be successful in life.

We have an extensive enrichment program offering; Spanish, different sports, arts and specialist music provision... all as a part of the school day, as well as many additional after school clubs offering yet more opportunities for personal development.

We believe in the power of adaptive teaching and work to meet the needs of all children, which includes teaching in small groups wherever possible.

We strive to develop our pupils' curiosity and independence through innovative and creative approaches.

We offer all of this within a uniquely warm and nurturing environment, allowing each child to... 'Learn, Enjoy and Succeed!'

Helpful & kind. Aspirational. Learners. Leaders. Enthusiastic & enterprising. Young adventurers.

We have a fantastic team of staff here, and we are a really close-knit community where our families support our school and help in making it a success.

Come along to one of our open mornings, and see Halley for yourself.
