Welcome from the Principal

The Olive School, Hackney is a Muslim faith primary school, established in response to community demand for high-quality education that meets the aspirations of local families. We are a Muslim faith school that promotes traditional British values and welcomes applications from all faiths and none.

Our vision for Olive Hackney is that it is a happy, friendly, safe and encouraging place where everyone feels welcome and valued; a place where expectations are high and achievement is expected and celebrated; a place where all members of the school community care about each other; a place where behaviour is exemplary and where success of all kinds is celebrated.

Our pursuit of educational excellence is based upon our unshakeable belief that every child is unique, special and has the capacity within them to succeed. As a result, staff offer an inspirational and life-enhancing educational experience for all children and work tirelessly to ensure that each and every child is nurtured, inspired, challenged and supported to succeed and develop their natural gifts and talents. We aim to build the skills, knowledge and positive attitudes necessary to help all our pupils become responsible, respectful and tolerant citizens of the future – exemplary members of their community who contribute to the development of a successful society.
