Welcome to Sir William Burrough

We are a state-funded Academy serving the local communities of Tower Hamlets.


Walk around our school any time, any day, and you will see classrooms where children and adults are alive with energy, passion and inspiration. Classrooms which are an endless joy, and a great privilege to see and to share.


This website explains how the school is organised and our video gallery shows the energy and excitement we generate for the children. We are very proud of our school and are always delighted to show you around. 


Kind regards, 


Avril Newman
