Stepney Green Maths, Computing & Science College is a mixed comprehensive school and one of the top schools in the Borough. We are heavily over-subscribed with long waiting lists. The majority of families are from Bangladesh and therefore most of the students are members of the Muslim faith. We have a small but increasing number of students from other communities. The school is located in the East End of London, close to Canary Wharf and docklands, in an area of social and economic disadvantage but also exciting new opportunities. It is close to residential riverside developments and no more than a mile from the City of London.
In 2014, Ofsted judged the school as “Good”, and these included teaching and learning, leadership and management, and parents/community links. DCSF has identified the school as a ‘High Performing Specialist School’. We have also gained a second specialism, which is in Science.
Standards of achievement at the school have steadily improved over time. At Key Stage 3 results have risen in all the core subjects and there is a rising trend in Key Stage 4. The school has been a Specialist School in Mathematics and Computing since September 2005. Standards within mathematics are outstanding, with some of our students studying A’ level at the age of 15 years. In 2020, our KS3 and KS4 attainment was above national standards.
Our sporting accomplishments are outstanding, our parents are extremely supportive and our staffs are committed to improving their practice. The Governing Body is fully supportive and keen to see Stepney Green realise its potential as a centre of excellence for learning and achievement.
The school benefits from a variety of funding including Excellence in Cities, National Grid for Learning, Behaviour Improvement Plan and is part of the Building Schools for the Future programme.
Stepney Green Maths, Computing & Science College is a vibrant and exciting place to teach, with staff who are extremely supportive of each other. We are very pleased with the improvements we have made but we are also determined to make further progress in the future. We are committed to the idea of continuous school improvement, providing all staff (particularly those new to the school) with excellent training and support and building a learning community for all.
