Eco-warriors Our eco-warriors are passionate about their local and global environment. This year they won a £1,000 grant through pitching to Unilever and Team London representatives at City Hall.

to know that their views and voices matter, and that they can facilitate positive change beyond a local platform. We continually develop our school ethos and curriculum so that we are known and valued in our neighbourhood. Learning, teaching and the curriculum Our curriculum combines both formal learning and creativity. We focus on the quality of teaching and provide a varied learning experience, one balanced between both knowledge and skill. Pupils have a wide range of opportunities for personal development through music, art, drama and sport as well as further academic learning. Our pupils and their learning are at the centre of everything we do. Our innovative curriculum promotes curious, collaborative and creative learning. We focus on the knowledge and skills our pupils will need in the future, and aim to develop their awareness of the world outside school while preparing them for the choices that lie ahead.
