Dear Parents and Guardians,
As you will be aware, Mr David Perks has been away from the school for some time and he has now made the decision to leave the school on a permanent basis.
Mr Perks founded the East London Science School in 2012, opening its doors to its first cohort of pupils in September 2013. On behalf of the Trust, I would like to thank Mr Perks for all of his efforts in establishing a school providing an ambitious, high-quality academic curriculum grounded in maths and science, to all pupils regardless of background or ability.
Looking ahead, I am happy to say that Dr Mark Taylor will continue in his role as Interim Principal, supported by his senior leadership team. The Trustees support the school by developing its governance and leadership capacity, and I look forward to keeping you up to date on these developments in the near future.
Chair of Governors
