Despite the social and economic challenges facing this London area, this Tower Hamlets school makes a significant difference through the belief that every child can be successful. Children are taught about the rich history of their community to instil a sense of pride.
As a school known nationally for commitment to the arts, the staff are leaders in this field. Through strong and purposeful partnerships, the school makes a positive local impact, including a collaboration with the local extra care home, where children and residents enjoy inter-generational learning together.
A beautiful outside space enables pupils to grow food, enjoy weekly Forest School lessons and have their own chicken and a pond. There is an established pupil Eco Committee and a school gardener who works with all pupils, all year round. Pupils enjoy fully-funded trips, free weekly music lessons, and dedicated specialist arts provision.
Lansbury Lawrence is the first school in Tower Hamlets to be awarded Artsmark Platinum.
