Hackney Community College is part of the New City College group, formed by the merger of Hackney, Tower Hamlets and Redbridge colleges. Being part of the New City College group means shared resources and expertise, greater financial stability and increased opportunity for students, staff and our local communities.

School leavers and adults can choose from hundreds of popular courses, and study full or part-time. We also have flexible opportunities for employers to train their staff, through our partner company View Training.

Our Shoreditch campus is based right in the heart of Hoxton – the vibrant home and workplace of the fashion and creative industries and on the doorstep of Europe’s fastest-growing technology hub, Tech City. There’s plenty of space to study and learn, with fabulous facilities for students to learn skilled trades as well as classroom based study. There’s also a spacious courtyard and buzzing student lounge with plenty of room for students to relax. We love our campus and know that you will too!
