intro text
Welcome to our school

Selwyn is a happy and successful school located in Plaistow, East London. We are at the heart of this culturally rich community where we are able to offer purposeful and exciting learning opportunities for all.

Everyone within our learning community has high aspirations and we work hard to make learning fun and relevant to each individual. We all have high expectations of behaviour and this has created a wonderfully positive and calm environment where everyone is respected and treated fairly.

This emphasis on a happy, calm and focused learning environment ensures that our children can progress and achieve their potential.  We are particularly delighted to be in the top 250 primary schools across Britain, as per the recent Sunday Times listing, published on the 20th November 2016.  Our position of 242 on the list of the top 2,000 schools places us within the top 1.44% of all primary schools in Britain - a truly remarkable achievement.

We hope that you find the website useful. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you require any additional information, or wish to make arrangements to visit us.
