Courage, Commitment, Compassion
Founded in 1957, Little Ilford School is a successful mixed multicultural 11-16 secondary school with 12 forms of entry situated in the London Borough of Newham.
We are a high achieving school described by Ofsted as outstanding in their last inspection in 2012. We are a proud, diverse and celebratory institution that enjoys an excellent reputation and strives to be an outward facing school working closely with our community.
We are culturally rich with an ethos based around praise, support and caring for each other. We have very high aspirations for the students whatever their personal or social challenges; we systematically remove all barriers to learning to ensure that all of our students can fulfil their potential and leave us as fully active citizens of the Manor Park community.
Most of our students begin at LIS well below national standards but achieve in line with, or exceed, national standards when they leave in Year 11; our students achieve well above national rates of progression. We expect all of our students to excel.
We intend to ensure that our students achieve even higher rates of progress and outcomes through high quality learning and teaching and a curriculum that provides opportunities for all students to excel.
