Welcome from the Headteacher

   As the recently appointed Headteacher  of Wanstead        High School, I’d like to  welcome you to our website.        Whether  you are a student, a parent,a prospective           parent, or a candidate for  a job, I hope that you find        this website  useful, and that we can inspire you to            want to find out more about our  fantastic school.

   Wanstead High School is a thriving 11-18                        comprehensive school in  the heart of the community.        I've joined  Wanstead High School at a really  exciting        time. The staff are totally  committed to doing the best      for their  students, and in return the students are  keen      to succeed.

   The key to successful secondary education is to offer a      broad and balanced curriculum that is taught well, by        subject specialists. That's what Wanstead High School is doing. We are also instilling our students with enquiring minds and strong, positive values that will help them to thrive. 

We provide a very strong core of traditional subjects, from Year 7 up to A level, as well as a huge breadth of choice, with some amazing facilities in Performing Arts and Sports. In addition to learning in the classroom, our students also have access to a huge spectrum of extra-curricular activities ranging from after school clubs through to residential trips abroad.

We are committed to providing the very best for the young people in our care, and I hope that you feel able to contribute to our further success.


Mr Bob Hamlyn
