About Wapping High School
Ethos and Values
Wapping High School promotes an inclusive ethos, in which diversity of need and ability is acknowledged and nurtured. Every aspect of school life will be guided by a strong ethical code, which encourages social awareness to help students understand and meet with confidence the challenges of a diverse and changing society and the world of work. This isl be achieved by establishing a Learning Pathway for each student.
Wapping High School is small and we have a strong sense of school community. Students are divided into ‘houses’ to encourage interaction across the school. Teachers know all their students individually. Families form part of the school community and are fully involved with their children’s education. Outcome-focused home-school contracts are made with both students and parents & carers.
Wapping High School’s ethos and values ensure that children are safe, healthy, positively contribute to their whole community, and achieve economic and academic well-being in adult life. Importantly, all students enjoy attending school.
Wapping High School is be located at 153 Commercial Road, London, E1 2DA, 15 minutes walk from the centre of Wapping. This former office block has been extensively renovated and reconfigured. The cutting-edge redesign is in line with Wapping High School’s commitment to provide personalised teaching methodologies to engage learning and develop inquisitive minds. Conversion of empty office space for education is successful and widespread in other parts of the world. The building includes specialist facilities for science, dance, drama, music and performance and a 5th floor roof garden with spectacular views across London.
