About Our School

The current governors and staff follow a long history of Christian education and witness at St. Luke’s. The school has a history of providing high quality education in this deprived area of London.

'This is the best School in my district. The very large new room is fast filling with scholars, whose order and attainment are most creditable.’ (Curate’s Report 1866)

'The school is well organized and supervised.’ (1905)

Our current building was designed to provide for and equip our pupils for the 21st century. We moved into our new building in 2000.

'A very positive ethos establishes pupils’ very good behaviour and attitudes, which
supports effective learning’

‘As pupils rightly say, almost everything about this school is outstanding and it succeeds exceptionally well in its published aim “to be a school where staff, pupils and parents want to be.” (2008)

St. Luke’s is within the Diocese of Chelmsford and works in close partnership with the London Borough of Newham. Children between the ages of 3 to 11 years now attend this one-form entry school.

Session Times:

Nursery School:
Nursery sessions are now being offered in whole day blocks (2 funded sessions) and you can buy an additional 3 hour session at a price of £16.50 (charged at £5.50 per hour as against recommended £5.57 per hour). We currently only have the facility to run full day provision on Mon-Wed. due to staffing restrictions. You can still just access your five funded sessions -  Monday to Friday mornings.
The new session times are 9am-12pm morning session, and 12-3pm afternoon session. If your child is staying from 9am-3pm you can purchase a hot lunch for £2.35 (Newham does not provide free meals for Nursery children) or bring in a healthy packed lunch if your child would prefer this.

Morning Session: 8.45am – 12noon
Lunchtime: 12noon – 1pm
Afternoon Session: 1pm – 3.15pm
