Our Academy is a large site in Dalston, Hackney, conveniently located within a short walk of Dalston Junction, Dalston Kingsland, Hackney Downs and Hackney Central stations. Built in 2006, the Academy is an incredibly flexible venue which is regularly used as both a filming location and venue for conferences, functions and is available for hire outside of Academy hours.
The Academy building is ultra modern and flooded with natural light, comprising classrooms, science labs, auditorium with screen, stage and PA system, refectory, library, outdoor patio and sixth form building with café and a car park.
The auditorium, with seating for up to 250 people, has a stage and large pull down screen and projector.
With a car park and fully equipped kitchen, the Academy is perfect for large functions including parties, weddings, wakes, screenings or meetings. We can also accommodate filming and location hire requests.
