Headteacher’s Welcome

4th September 2015


I fully understand how important it is to you as parents and carers to select the right secondary school for your son or daughter. You will want the school to provide your child with opportunities to develop socially and academically in an environment which is challenging, caring and supportive. Raine’s Foundation school is able to offer these opportunities.

Raine’s offers something different. We are a smaller than average secondary school. This means pupils are recognised as individuals which enables support to be tailored to their needs. Raine’s Foundation Church of England Secondary School is an all ability co-educational school for girls and boys aged 11-19. The School is rightly proud of its long tradition of achievement within a Christian ethos and welcomes pupils from all faiths and those with none. We are a local school for local children. We have recently changed our admissions policy and we welcome all members of our community and no supplementary form is now required.

Raine’s Foundation School is one of the oldest schools in London and has played an important role in the East End for nearly 300 years. Developing a sense of community is pivotal to the schools ethos, as we move further into the 21st century we are developing our community spirit to ensure Raine’s Foundation School is a school for local children, just as it was when the school was established in 1719.

We are an improving school as we strive towards our goal of ‘Achieving Excellence by Unlocking Potential’.   Exam results, in all areas, are improving and we expect further improvements in 2017.

Our aim at Raine’s is to ensure that all our pupils can be the best they can be, every day, ensuring they achieve their potential in all aspects of life.

I look forward to welcoming you to our school and invite you to visit us at one of our open mornings or at our open evening.
