Headteacher's Welcome

Welcome to Sir William Burrough Primary School, a nurturing, inspiring and ambitious school that has been rooted in the heart of the local community for generations.

Although built into the fabric of Tower Hamlets, we are committed to helping our pupils to become global citizens. We want them to have a strong sense of self – physically, emotionally and socially – and understand the wider world, so that they are best equipped to find their place in it.

As part of University Schools Trust (UST), we are fortunate to benefit from partnerships that enrich our children’s lives beyond your typical primary school. With six world leading universities providing opportunities for our pupils they are able to dream big from a young age.

These fantastic and unique relationships help us to provide an innovative curriculum that incorporates a diverse range of educational visits and experiences, ensuring pupils are motivated and engaged. This passion for learning is the hallmark of an SWB education.

We hope our website will give you a flavour of what our pupils and their families experience during their time with us, but there is no substitute for the real thing. We hold open days during the Autumn term and welcome visits from parents and carers. If you would like to meet us to find out more, please do not hesitate to book a time through our website.
