Local Wapping resident Dame Helen Mirren has offered her support to the Wapping High School project. In a message to the Trustees she states:
"I fully support the project to open a new secondary school for children in Wapping and Shadwell in Tower Hamlets. Shadwell has the highest level of child poverty in England. Plans for the new school, created by the local community will be inclusive and offer local children both an outstanding education and opportunities for life enhancing experiences. I would like to urge the government and business leaders to back this project and ensure real change for some of England's most deprived children."
We are very grateful for her support. It is good to know that local residents are backing this project.
