Hackney New School plans two open days for prospective secondary school pupils

Hackney New School will be holding two open days for prospective secondary students.

The school, which will specialise in music, was given the go-ahead over the summer to open in September 2013 as part of the government’s free schools strategy

The open day on Saturday September 22 will include a workshop for youngsters with the Junk Orchestra, while children will be able to participate in a song writing session on Saturday September 29.

Places are limited to 30 children and the session will start at 2.30pm, with a mini concert at 3.15pm.

Both open days take place at Our Lady & St Joseph Primary School in Buckingham Road from 2pm to 4pm.

The school’s team hope to announce a location for the school in South West Hackney by the end of the month.
