Housed in a Grade II listed building, the school boasts dedicated creative facilities, featuring a music room, drama studio, and an art room with a kiln, fostering a vibrant and artistic atmosphere. The school promotes innovation by incorporating a state-of-the-art STEM room, ensuring students develop essential 21st-century skills.

As a state-funded school, Colvestone adheres to the National Curriculum, covering compulsory subjects such as English, Maths, Science, ICT, History, Geography, Design & Technology, Art & Design, Music, and Physical Education, with Religious Education also offered (excluding certain aspects that parents may opt to extract their children from). The school endeavors to promote a cross-curricular approach and offers an extended curriculum, including Spanish.

Students at Colvestone participate in a dynamic, thematic curriculum that promotes cross-subject learning, with each term focusing on one topic or a combination of themes to enhance their understanding of various disciplines. For example, the Autumn term 2024 will explore the topic of People and Places, and classes will delve into history, geography, and diverse cultures.

The school takes Personal, Social, and Health Education (PSHE) seriously, providing dedicated PSHE lessons and experiences such as House Time, which allows for the development of children's holistic skills including Personal, Social, and Emotional Development (PSED).

Please note that Hackney Council is considering consulting on potential school closures or mergers, with the deterioration of pupil numbers in specific schools causing financial and structural concerns.
