Welcome to Connaught School for Girls in the heart of Leytonstone, East London. It is my pleasure to lead and work with exceptional staff, striving to offer our students the best education possible. Our students are well motivated, keen to learn and achieve their potential. Connaught students have achieved excellent examination results year on year.
Over 150 Year 9 and 10 students visited the Crystal, an exhibition centre at Royal Victoria Docks that focusses entirely on cities of the future and urban sustainability through interactive exhibits, films, animations and the ‘Future Life’ theatre that invited our students to imagine how cities might look in 2050.
The 2015 Waltham Forest School Science Debate took place at Connaught School for Girls and was a great success. The topic of discussion was “Fracking – as a short term solution to meet our increasing energy demands”. Four school teams battled against each other in intensive competition.
The 2015 GCSE Geography controlled assessment fieldwork was based on the sustainability of the East Village development in the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park which has been transformed into homes, parks, shops, medical services and a new school.
To celebrate World Book Day 2015 the school library held a speed dating/book reading event. Students really enjoyed talking about the books they have been reading and every student came away wanting to read one or more of the books they heard about.
