Our Heritage: 100 Years of the Stormont House Hospital

15th January 2016

Starting on Monday 1 February Year 7 will be undertaking a week long project called ‘Fifth Element’ - it is a Stormont House Centenary partnership project between Fifth Word Theatre, Hackney Museum and Hackney Archives. The project is being supported by Hackney Council’s Leisure and Green Spaces team. The pupils will be learning about the lives of the staff and patients who were at Stormont House Hospital during World War 1.

Fifth Word Theatre group will be working with the Year 7 students to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the Stormont House Hospital which was situated on Hackney Downs Park where our current school is positioned.


The aim of the project is to enable the Year 7 students to become  curators and to create an exhibition which will be touring Hackney Museum, Hackney Downs Park Pavillion and Hackney Archives from spring 2016 onwards.
