I am pleased to welcome you to Mossbourne Riverside Academy. This website will enable you to be kept informed about the policies and successes that make Mossbourne Riverside Academy a unique school.


Mossbourne Riverside Academy is one of a group of academies arising from the realization of Sir Clive Bourne’s dream to provide the children of Hackney with an outstanding education. Mossbourne Riverside Academy follows a formula of high expectations, doing the simple things right, and holds the belief that all children can succeed. Our calm working atmosphere helps to create well-rounded pupils who excel academically, in the arts, and on the sporting field.


In September 2016 our new building opened on Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park. It is here on this prestigious site that we will expand over the years to become a three-form entry primary academy. Our first cohorts of pupils will be very special, because they will be the example to all future years and will be pioneers in making another outstanding Mossbourne academy.

Values and Ethos

We have 3 values that express our shared understanding of what we believe, how we aim to behave and what we aspire to be.


EXCELLENCE: Doing everything as well as we can, always.

NO EXCUSES: Believing that anything is possible, we never give up.

UNITY: Working together towards our goals, with integrity.


Here at Mossbourne Riverside Academy we believe anything is possible with the right attitude. We believe in the freedom to learn creatively in a calm, safe environment – and we believe every child can succeed.
