The Boxing Academy

The Boxing Academy is a unique and groundbreaking charity which works with the most difficult-to-reach young people in the London boroughs of Hackney and Tottenham.

Founded 2007

  • Mission statement

    The Boxing Academy is committed to changing the lives of young people aged thirteen to sixteen who are in danger of educational exclusion.

    AN ALTERNATIVE TO EXCLUSION:

    We provide an alternative to mainstream school, combining basic education and mentoring with the discipline and culture of boxing and other sport training to re-engage the most difficult-to-reach young people.

    We support our students in their education, improve their health and happiness, and encourage them to aim for a better future.

  • Aims

    The Boxing Academy aims to:

    • 1. Empower students by providing education, discipline and life skills in a structured and caring environment.
    • 2. Assist our students to embark upon a positive cycle of achievement and improve their self esteem.
    • 3. Guide our students to sit their examinations, and assist them in progressing to further education, training and employment.
    • 4. Invoke the discipline and culture of boxing to promote in our students a sense of responsibility for their actions and pride in their achievements.
    • 5. Work in partnership with our referring schools and other service providers in order to achieve these aims and improve on our best practice continuously.
