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.
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.
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.
A Connaught School for Girls badminton team has won the Waltham Forest Borough Badminton Competition, for the third year in succession. Three teams competed at the event, held at Redbridge Sports Centre where our students had a fantastic day representing the school. Many congratulations to you all!
Our 2014 Christmas Charity, run by our School Council, has delivered 44 bags brimming with 'goodies' to a Homeless Shelter in North London. 'Shelter from the Storm' provides hot meals and a warm bed to homeless people completely free to its guests and is open every night of the year.
