Welcome to our school


Ben Jonson is a welcoming, ambitious and inclusive three-form entry community primary school for children between the ages of four and eleven. We share a site with Harry Roberts Nursery School and two classes from Phoenix School; we work closely together to serve the community in the heart of the Ocean Estate, Tower Hamlets.

The school’s greatest asset is the children. Our children are happy, curious, hardworking and motivated to do their best. They are eager to learn and make the most of opportunities to participate in a range of trips, projects and extra-curricular activities. Their parents and carers take every opportunity to support and engage with the school in their child’s learning; we value this.

The staff members at Ben Jonson are dedicated, talented and work hard for all the children. This is evident in the high expectations all staff have for every child’s wellbeing and achievement. Our curriculum is well-resourced and enhanced by specialist teaching for music, art, dance, computing and design and technology.

Our school is a beautiful, spacious and modern building that allows us to provide a rich and stimulating environment where learning flourishes. Our commitment to the arts is palpable as you walk around the building. Our impressive grounds border the historic Regent’s Canal and the wide open spaces of Mile End Park, but are just a short distance from the City of London.

Our website gives you a sense of school life. You will find lots of general information about us here. Do go to the media section especially as you will see our children in action!

We are very proud of our school, and the community that it serves. You are warmly invited to visit the school and find out more.
