Selwyn Primary School

Selwyn is a much larger than the average-sized primary school in the culturally diverse Highams Park area in East London. The school has over 670 pupils on roll and there are over 40 community languages spoken by families at our  school.  In July 2014,  the school was judged as being a good school with many aspects of the school’s work outstanding. We are very proud of this achievement but are aiming for excellence.


In September 2016, the school became part of Arbor Academy Trust, sponsored by Davies Lane Primary School, in Leytonstone. This is an outstanding school  and recognised as a National Support School and part of the Tollgate Teaching School Alliance. The schools share an Executive Principal and a CEO who is also a National Leader of Education, two heads of school and a governing body.  The school has a nursery and also has provision for two-year old education.


This website aims to give you a flavour  what we represent as a school, as well as providing updated information for both parents, pupils and the community. We hope that you enjoy your visit to our website, and that you find the information you are looking for. Please feel free to contact the school directly with any queries you may have.
