Partners with the school
We actively seek partnerships that will enrich and extend children's learning , and provide real links with the wider world. We have long established links with Wadham College, Oxford University, whose students work with year 5 and 6 on mini research projects and who help us to raise our aspirations with visits to Oxford university.
We also work closely with Hermitage River Projects on our local and oral history projects, based on our links with the docks and the River Thames.
There are a number of world class arts institutions that have worked with our children, including the National Theatre, on the Romeo and Juliet Shakespeare project, the Guildhall, who provided year 5 children with the chance to perform in the West End, and the Whitechapel Art Gallery, who along with artists in Residence, Tom and Simon Bloor created a lasting art legacy in the school playground.
Local businesses who have supported us include News International and the Tower of London, who have provided us with reading partners, and St George's who have consulted the children as they redevelop the News International site.
