Parent Pay Problems 23rd April

There is currently a problem with Parent Pay.  A backlog of payments is currently being processed and this is leading to error messages for parents attempting to upload funds.  Please do check back to the Parent Pay website regualrly throughout the day as we hope that the problem will soon be rectified


Welcome to Wanstead High School. I hope the information contained within this website provides a useful and helpful insight into the life and work of the school.

Wanstead is an 11-18 comprehensive school with strong traditions rooted in the local community. The school has a committed staff, students who want to learn and supportive parents. We are forward looking and constantly seeking to improve in order to offer a first class education, in the widest sense, for our students.

We look to the future with confidence and believe we provide a safe, supportive learning environment in which all our students enjoy school and can develop their full potential.

C.Van Bussel, Headteacher
