There is a diverse choice of schools in Islington, including single or mixed sex schools, faith schools and academies, and a range of specialisms covering business, languages, science, arts, sports, technology, maths and humanities

Types of secondary school

Community schools (5) These are run by Islington Council and a governing body. The council employs the staff, owns the land and buildings and sets the admission criteria.

Voluntary-aided (3) These are faith schools where the governing body runs the school, employs the staff and sets admission criteria. School buildings are usually owned by a charitable foundation and/or religious organisation.

Academies (2) These are independent state-funded schools managed by sponsors (which could be religious groups, charities or commercial businesses) that set and apply the admission arrangements.

Parents’ involvement in their child’s education is important and you will receive written reports on your child’s progress as well as invitations to meet with their teachers. You can find a list of Secondary Schools on the Family Directory. All secondary schools have their own websites.
