We provide a happy and nurturing environment so that as well as maturing into well-rounded, healthy young people, our children develop a passion for learning.

Developing the whole child is of paramount importance to us, and we work hard to ensure that our children are not only successful learners but also responsible citizens.

This is complimented by a wide range of extra-curricular clubs, inspiring school visits and residential experiences which build pupils’ character, help them to become more resilient and develop communication and collaboration skills.

Greenways is a part of the Learning in Harmony Trust (LiHT), which was founded with two Newham schools in 2014 and has since grown to nine schools across London and Essex. The Trust was founded on the principle of working in harmony to achieve excellence for all.
