Welcome to Wanstead Church School.
I am very proud to be the Headteacher of this wonderful school. Despite it being a small school, it has a strong and positive community which extends well beyond the school gates! I arrived here in the Spring of 2012 for what should have been just one term following the previous Head Teacher leaving for a new project in a neighbouring authority. I was instantly made to feel very welcome and quickly realised that this was somewhere I wanted to be for some time!
We have amazing children and staff that keep the school the vibrant and happy place it has always been. The Christian faith is at its heart and learning about who we all are is just as important to us as learning new skills and knowledge each day.
We greatly value the partnership between families and school and we often take opportunities to be able to work and celebrate together.
This is a successful and forward moving school although there is always more that we can achieve and improve on for our children. Whilst it may be a very different place than when the school was first created in 1790, there are still many traditions and parts to it that hold true to its founding aims.
I hope that this website provides you with the information which you are seeking but if you cannot find something, please contact the school and we will be happy to help you.
Mr R. Mark Hemsley
As the Church of England School of the Parish of Wanstead we will work in partnership with home and church to offer excellence in education rooted in the Christian Faith. We will serve and nurture all the children in our care that they may realise their full potential.
