Welcome To The Ellen Wilkinson School

EWS is a wonderfully diverse school, a microcosm of multi-cultural London with students and staff from a range of different backgrounds, faiths and cultures. We have gained a variety of awards recognising our strengths in areas from our success in adding value (Specialist Schools Award) to Investor in People (since 1999). We are particularly proud of the SSAT Gold Award for Cultural Diversity, the assessors noting that “the ethos of the school is an outstanding feature” and that there is “a highly cohesive and mutually supportive community where everyone feels valued and enjoys learning”. Our recent Ofsted report also recognised the girls’ outstanding personal development and well-being.
