George Green's School
|At George Green’s School, we are deeply committed to being an exceptional school. Our vision and values are deep-rooted and live at the heart of everything we do. We believe that great schools like ours are engines of social change, teaching powerful knowledge to young people so that they can go on to become change-makers and develop into the best possible people they can be. Our vision goes beyond simple success in exams: we will teach our students the cultural, scientific and social knowledge they need to go on to become happy adults, fully engaged in the cultural, economic and democratic life of the society in which they live.

We are proud to be a UNICEF Gold Rights Respecting School. The rights outlined in the Convention on the Rights of the Child are embedded in our school's vision, ethos and culture.
George Green’s School has a long and rich history. Founded in 1828, it has for nearly 200 years played a pivotal role in the education of the children of the Isle of Dogs. This long history has helped shape our traditional ethos. We believe in a traditional curriculum, broad in scope, with academic learning at its heart, with an emphasis on English, Maths, Science, the Humanities and Languages. We also have a traditional approach to behaviour. We believe in hard work and good discipline. Students are expected to attend well, be on time and to do their best. We expect them to be courteous, respectful and polite. We have one very simple rule at George Green’s – right time, right place, right thing. No Excuses.
