A high proportion of the pupils in local schools are on free school meals, but notwithstanding this level of deprivation, the area has many well-rated primary schools. The following are judged “outstanding” by the government’s education watchdog Ofsted: St Luke’s CofE in Ruscoe Road, Hallsville in Radland Road, St Joachim’s RC in Shipman Road, Britannia Village in Westwood Road and North Beckton in East Ham Manor Way.
The best performing local comprehensive school is Brampton Manor (co-ed, ages 11 to 18) in Roman Road which is also judged “outstanding”. Faraday School (co-ed, ages four to 11) at nearby Trinity Buoy Wharf is a private primary school.
There is a University of East London campus and student village with over 1,200 student rooms at the far eastern end of the Royal Albert Dock, including the colourful circular Edward Cullinan-designed blocks.
