Vision, Aims, Ethos

Our Ethos

St. Luke’s has a 150 year history of service to the people of Canning Town, although the current building was built in 1999 there has been a St. Luke’s School on this site since 1864 - and we have attendance records and punishment books from the Victorian times to prove it!

Our passion is to educate the whole child. We absolutely value the importance of academic excellence but we seek excellence in all spheres of life whether that be spiritual, artistic, sporting or service to the community. We achieve this by having a dedicated team that works closely together to understand the strengths of all our children and crucially welcome the partnership of parents to ensure we are successful with all our children.

One of the advantages of being in a small school is that core understanding and partnership is so much easier to foster – I say that as someone whose previous role was in a 3 form entry school where that was very difficult to achieve. We look towards innovations to create a mindset of constant improvement and also are fiercely protective of the good things that we already do.
