Welcome Back! We are delighted to start the 2021-22 academic year with the opening of our Nursery provision for 3-4 year olds. If your family, or anyone you know, would like a place please contact the school office. We are also pleased to launch our brand new school video and the return of regular school tours for families looking for a Reception place starting September 2022.


Welcome to Halley House School, a one form entry primary free school based in Hackney. We opened our doors to our founding pupils and families on Monday 7th September 2015 and will grow year on year until we are at capacity in 2021. We pride ourselves on offering a broad, balanced and rich curriculum, with a sharp focus on early literacy skills, ICT and Outdoor Learning.

We are HALLEY.

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

We also have an extensive enrichment programme, offering Spanish, LAMDA, sports, performance and specialist music provision as part of the school day and in our After School Club provision. We firmly believe in providing a highly individualised approach to education, which includes limiting group sizes to 15 pupils for core subjects, allowing all of our children opportunities to exploit their existing strengths and interests, whilst supporting their development needs. We strive to develop our children’s curiosity and independence through innovative and creative approaches, providing them with the skills and knowledge they need to help them progress to the next stage of their education and beyond. We offer all of this within a uniquely warm and nurturing environment, allowing every child to Learn, Enjoy and Succeed!

We have a fantastic team of staff, governors, families and community members supporting our school and helping to make it the success we envisage - why not come along to one of our open mornings, weekly Stay & Play sessions or one of our many charitable or fundraising events to see for yourself and find out a bit more! I would be delighted to meet you and show you our flourishing school.

With warm wishes,

Claire Syms - HeadTeacher
