East London Independent School’s new state-of-the-art building in Stratford, east London was officially opened by Dame Esther Rantzen DBE on June 29.
During the opening event, Dame Esther and other guests toured the school which now boasts six new classrooms, as well as a double art room and state-of-the-art classrooms for science, ICT and food technology. There is also a new school hall, two sensory rooms, and an excellent outside space. Said Dame Esther, “It was a privilege to open this remarkable school building and see the amazing new spaces that have been created to support pupils with special education needs. This building represents the school’s commitment to integration, and their inclusive approach means that more young people in east London will be educated locally and get the support they need. I’m sure staff and pupils will enjoy and benefit greatly from their new facilities.”
