About Us


The school is set in beautiful surroundings in Wapping East London, which is safe and secure overlooking the River Thames.  The location is close to both the City of London and Canary Wharf. The name of the school comes from the location of the premises.


Children are grouped according to age whilst also taking into account the child’s individual needs and ability. Your child will have a key teacher. This will be the person responsible for helping your child settle in to The Pre Prep School.


Each class follows their own timetable, the day structured by the staff to allow free choice of activities within a planned and ordered environment. We follow the individual needs of the child by fusing the Montessori philosophy with the English National Curriculum.
