Sponsored by the Jack Petchey Foundation, the 1200 place Petchey Academy in Hackney replaces the existing Kingsland School, which was entirely demolished prior to the new academy’s opening in September 2007. In the interim a temporary school for one year group of 180 students opened in September 2006 for the first year intake.

The £25M Petchey Academy includes a sixth form college for 300 students, and has a specialism in healthcare and medical sciences. Part of the site has been dedicated to a Child Development Centre (CDC), which has been developed separately from the academy. The Academy has gained a number of awards including ECM Gold, Inclusion Award and National Healthy School Status.
