We are a vibrant, friendly and diverse community in the heart of the London Borough of Tower Hamlets. Our school offers state-of-the-art facilities, a rigorous and academic curriculum and outstanding teaching and learning opportunities, all of which contributed to our excellent 2015 examination results.

We are fully committed to securing outstanding academic outcomes for all our pupils and believe enrichment opportunities help to achieve this. We have welcomed guest speakers such as the poet Benjamin Zephaniah, politician Nick Clegg and the actress Joanna Lumley. We also enjoy fruitful partnerships with organisations such as Ogilvy Marketing and Allen and Overy Law firm to help raise aspirations and develop vision for the future within our school.

We aim to make school an enjoyable, challenging, life-changing experience where all girls are provided with the opportunity to flourish academically, spiritually and emotionally. This rich, holistic approach to the development of the whole child means all pupils leave our school confident and with a greater appreciation and awareness of the World in which they live.
