Welcome to Wapping High School where children experience something exceptional; a new vision of future learning.

We are a small school, the 84 girls and boys in each year have an education that is student centred and tailored to their individual needs. Our shared expectation of positive learning behaviours are supported by modern, innovative and exciting spaces. 

Our talented staff know every student and work with them to ensure that they leave the school truly ready to move into the world of higher education and work as global citizens, high achievers and self-confident, rounded people. The curriculum blends high quality, imaginative learning supported by a rich, digital environment with a rigorous focus on ensuring that all students develop the highest quality skills in reading, writing, numeracy and communication. As well as the range of subjects that you would expect, students also learn how best to learn, to communicate, to think critically and strategically, and to understand themselves, each other and the wider world, both real and virtual.

We have a longer school day where every learning experience is engaging and aspirational. There are opportunities to learn in a wide range of methods and groupings and with a leadership and enrichment programme as an integral element.

The school has been born from its community and will become a hub for community activity, reflecting and respecting the rich diversity of its students, parents and community partners.

As Headteacher, I set the highest standards and expectations for me, my staff and my students. All of us own and enjoy our learning, respect and value each other, have fun and contribute to a safe and happy school where we are aspiring, limitless learners and we celebrate our successes together.
