About us

What we stand for

We are an exciting and vibrant school in the heart of Islington. The New North Community School opened in 2007 after the amalgamation of two primary schools – Charles Lamb and Ecclesbourne Primary School. When the schools merged we moved into a wonderful new building and later in 2011 became an academy.

We boast really fantastic, state of the art facilities including a purpose built dance studio, sports and drama halls, equipped with professional sound and lighting, and very soon a fantastic ‘jamming space’ to support the practice of our young musicians. This year we will be developing our outdoor learning environment so that children are better able to continue their learning in a space that encourages exploration, discovery and physical development in a natural, green space. Our school is a stimulating place to learn, with an enthusiastic, committed and caring team of professionals.

Learning in Harmony Trust

We are part of a supportive, growing trust.

The Learning in Harmony Trust was formed in September 2014 by Sheringham Primary School and JFK Special School. In 2015, we were joined by two other Newham schools, Upton Cross Primary School and Hartley Primary School, and three further schools joined us in the first term of the 2016-17 school year - Blenheim Primary School and Greenways Primary School, all of which are located in Southend. Drew Primary School, also in Newham, joined us in January 2017. The latest school to join the trust is Temple Sutton Primary and Early Years School March 2018. We do expect to further increase our number of schools and expand our geographical range in the near future, but there is no intention to outgrow our capacity. We want to be big enough to sustainably do all the amazing things we want to do, but small enough to still know each other very well. For us, learning in harmony doesn't mean all schools have to be the same. We are bound together by our belief that by working in partnership as one organisation we can make a significant difference to the children and young people in our schools. We are proud to have both similarities and differences as schools, and see this diversity as a strength. Our shared values unite us.


With 8 schools situated in East London and in coastal Essex, staff working within our Trust have the opportunity to embrace a diverse range of experiences, from inner city multi-ethnic Newham down to Southend on Sea, only a 45 minute train journey away. Our range of schools provide a number of rich experiences for staff and students alike. With a number of good and outstanding Infant, Junior and Primary Schools, as well as a fantastic split-site Special School, our staff need look no further when it comes to career development.
