The Boxing Academy

The Boxing Academy is an alternative provision school for those aged 14-16 in Hackney, East London. The school, which opened in 2017, can cater for up to 40 students who are not thriving in mainstream education. GCSEs in English Language, Mathematics, RE, Art and Science are available, as well as vocational and boxing pathways. Through its unique boxing discipline-based ethos, boxing mentors help pupils to channel their aggression and learn discipline, teamwork and achievement, often for the first time in their lives.
