Welcome to Faraday from our headteacher, Lucas Motion


We are an independent co-ed prep school in East London and part of an exciting, creative community on Trinity Buoy Wharf, a newly regenerated area on the banks of the River Thames.

Our Story

Faraday School was opened in 2009 by the New Model School Company with a simple philanthropic aim: to provide an excellent affordable prep education.

Vision and Values

A New Model School offers a great value education. We are forward thinking, sustainability is central to our ethos and our school buildings are modern and innovative. We deliver an ambitious knowledge-based curriculum that is taught in a creative way. We are confident that what we teach, and how we teach it, is truly excellent.

Faraday has professional, enthusiastic staff all committed to instilling a love of lifelong learning in our pupils. Our teachers are academically ambitious for their students but care equally about wellbeing and creating an environment in which every child thrives.



The Friends of Faraday is a very active parent organisation and a vital part of the school community. All parents are encouraged to take part and their involvement strengthens the family feel of Faraday, playing a crucial role in the ongoing success of the school.
