Our school, like the Wharf, has been reimagined in an innovative way. Space is used effectively. Some of our classrooms are housed in shipping containers – perfect for our small class sizes – and we feel right at home. Container City, the amazing modular studios that are the much-photographed face of Trinity Buoy Wharf, is also home to many local artists. The River Thames literally surrounds our school and the children can see it at all times, whether watching boats from our roof-top playground, helping in our bankside garden or as they walk through the Wharf to their roof-top sports ground for PE lessons.
It is a community that buzzes with the spirit of invention and imagination. It’s the perfect place for a school with the values of curiosity, creativity and community.
As a school, we aim to interest and inspire our pupils – to challenge them to be intellectually curious. We follow a rigorous knowledge-based curriculum that we deliver in a creative way. This means we go the extra mile to engage our children in what we teach and how we teach it. We are ambitious for all our pupils, delivering lessons that go beyond the limitations of the National Curriculum to create a lifelong love of learning. Many of our Year 6 children go on to top senior schools in London and beyond.
The arts and creativity are a golden thread that runs through our school and London is our classroom. We have amazing local links with the artists on Trinity Buoy Wharf, providing pupils and staff with many exciting learning opportunities. With a professional artist visiting our older years for art classes and endless trips for the children to unleash their creative spirit, it is no surprise that we have several talented artists at the school. A number have been exhibited locally and many have taken part in national competitions like Take One Picture and The Big Draw.
Your child will be seen and known at Faraday. We are a tight-knit community where every child is listened to. Our excellent pastoral care is fundamental to the success of the school. Without it, I believe academic achievement will always hit a glass ceiling. Happy and articulate children love learning, and initiatives like our ‘monthly value’ system, or ‘buddy reading’ between Reception and Year 6, help create a caring space where every child can thrive.
To find out more about what makes Faraday so special, please contact us via our Admissions and Open Days pages to arrange a visit, or call our Registrar, Stefanie Harvey, on 0208 965 7374 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. She will be more than happy to help.
