The Boxing Academy were rewarded with the Youth Development Award
Formed in 2007, the Academy offers an education pathway for students aged 14-16 who need an alternative to mainstream schooling.
The Academy has gone from strength to strength since it was established, growing from supporting just four excluded students in a rundown shed in North London to now providing a lifeline to over 40 vulnerable young people in the heart of Hackney.
Last year, 100 per cent of its pupils left with a qualification and went on to gain a place in education, employment or training. Such results demonstrate just how valuable the Academy is in helping young people embark upon a positive cycle of achievement.
