Cardinal Pole Roman Catholic School is a mixed, voluntary aided secondary school in the London Borough of Hackney, United Kingdom. Year 7 and 8 pupils are housed in the Annexe in Victoria Park Road and pupils in Year 9 to 13 on the main site in Kenworthy Road. The school currently has approximately 1080 pupils. It is named after Reginald Cardinal Pole, the last Roman Catholic Archbishop of Canterbury.


All pupils must wear school uniform which consists of a blue, red, white and black tartan skirt with a white blouse (short-sleeved), black V-neck jumper and black blazer with the school badge for the girls; black trousers, blazer, white shirt and the school tie for the boys. There is also a school P.E. kit, which consists of a choice of a black t-shirt, black football shorts, white football socks, red rugby shirt or black school tracksuit and trainers or inexpensive plimpsolls. The t-shirt, rugby shirt and tracksuit can only be purchased from the same shop which stocks the skirt and blazer. Sixth formers (Years 12-13) are not required to wear the uniform.


As suggested by the name, Cardinal Pole is a Roman Catholic school. While it admits a substantial number of non-Catholic pupils, most of the students are from Catholic backgrounds. A religious assembly attended by staff and pupils is held four times a week. On occasion, Masses replace general assembly. Every student is required to take Religious Education at GCSE level, in keeping with the school's religious ethos. A non-examination Religious Education Programme is also followed by all sixth-form students.
