Hackney Fostering Service

Fostering good education

Children in fostering

Statistically, children in care struggle to perform well in education, however more and more foster children from Hackney are going onto college and University. Over the last three years Hackney’s looked after children scored among of the highest GCSE grades across the country against their peers. This standard of good results continues, due to the work foster carers and our Virtual School do to support, encourage and nurture children and young people to achieve the best outcomes possible.
