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.
