Welcome to Wanstead High School

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.
