Welcome to Sir William Burrough

We are a state-funded Academy serving the local communities of Tower Hamlets.

 

Walk around our school any time, any day, and you will see classrooms where children and adults are alive with energy, passion and inspiration. Classrooms which are an endless joy, and a great privilege to see and to share.

 

Our video gallery shows the abundant enthusiasm and excitement generated by the children, but please come along and see it all for yourselves. We are very proud of our school and are always delighted to show you around. 

 

Kind regards, 

 

Avril Newman
