George Tomlinson Primary is a wonderful school in the heart of our local community of Leytonstone. We are proud of our multi-cultural community, where all religions and nationalities are represented and celebrated. We strongly believe that education and learning is a ongoing process and is very much a partnership between home and school.
We live out our vision of ‘Excellence through Enjoyment’.
Diverse, Happy, Creative, Inspiring and Ambitious in all we do.
At George Tomlinson we believe that all children deserve quality first teaching that is supported by excellent curricular opportunities and extended services that nurture and engage children. We want our pupils to feel that when it comes to aspirations the sky is the limit and to prepare them fully for life at secondary school and beyond. We believe in achieving Excellence through Enjoyment.
We have a large building and exciting learning and play areas for all ages. We have a dance studio, a multi-games area, an exciting Science playground, a rooftop space and a hidden field for learning outdoors off Vernon Road.
We have an engaging and challenging curriculum that is accessible for all pupils.
We offer instrumental music lessons across school and children have the opportunity to learn to play guitar, ukulele and recorder and we love to sing in our weekly singing assemblies!
French is taught across school. Trips take place each term to extend our learning and children in Years 5 and 6 have the opportunity to take part in a residential over night trip. All our year groups visit a London art gallery or cultural space each year. We offer a range of exciting after school clubs, for example street dance, coding and karate.
The school was judged as Good in its last Ofsted inspection in 2023 commenting:
"Pupils really enjoy coming to this happy, welcoming and inclusive school. Staff have high expectations for everyone to do well." and
"This is a school where everyone is valued for who they are. Even the youngest children learn the importance of helping others."
