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.

Investors in Careers
Wanstead High School is currently engaged in applying for Investors in Careers status. This is a three part certification process that will bring the school fully up to speed on careers information and guidance.
The first certificate which should be completed by the end of November is one of commitment. This has involved consulting the PTA, the Governors, and gathering evidence from all departments on the careers advice they give and the submission of year plans from the Heads of Year.
By the end of this process we will have a fully integrated careers framework in which students have a clear idea of the careers they are aiming for and a step by step approach to achieving their goals. If you have any questions on the process or on careers education in general at the school please email email@example.com
