Ribbon cut on East End’s showpiece new school
THE first new school in London’s East End officially opens today under the Government’s ambitious ‘Schools for the Future’ programme.
The ribbon is being cut this afternoon at the �16 million ‘showpiece’ St Paul’s Way Trust School in Bow Common.
Tower Hamlets Mayor Lutfur Rahman is touring the campus to see the state-of-the-art science, visual arts and sports facilities.
The pupils are also staging a musical in school theatre to celebrate the new campus which has been in use since January.
St Paul’s Way has been completely turned around since it was on Ofted’s ‘notice to improve’ as a failed school just four years ago.
