Welcome to the website for Willow Brook Primary Academy, a proud member of the Griffin Schools Trust. Willow Brook is a vibrant and exciting community where pupils are given wonderful opportunities to learn, develop and shine.


At Willow Brook, learning through enquiry is the golden thread which underpins everything we do. Our curriculum nurtures the whole child, enabling them to confidently formulate and articulate their thoughts, whilst being able to work collaboratively, critically question and challenge ideas. Children can identify themselves within a diverse and inclusive curriculum, which promotes cultural capital and aspirations for success.

A Willow Brook child has the self-belief to identify as an author, a scientist, a mathematician and much more with the core values and ethos of this wonderful school nurturing each child to become their best self and propelling them to ‘Griffin Great’.

The foundation that underpins our drive for excellence are the three interconnected pillars of Proud Traditions, Wide Horizons and High Achievement. Together they hold our vision, our values and illuminate the path that is expressed in our motto, Ad Altiora, towards higher things.

We are proud to serve a diverse community in the heart of East London and have been educating children in our beautiful school building since 1874. Our location sees us perfectly placed to take full advantage of everything this inspiring city has to offer, further allowing us to provide an education that is fit for children of the future.

Come and visit the school and meet our dedicated staff and fantastic children. Everyone wants to be a part of it.

“At Willow Brook there is a lively atmosphere and the buzz of activity in the school reflect the pupils’ real enthusiasm for learning.”
