Welcome to our school

Ben Jonson is driven to succeed. A vibrant and exciting three-form entry community primary school, we are situated in the heart of the Ocean Estate, Tower Hamlets.

Our children deserve excellence. The energy and enthusiasm of our children is striking; they are eager to learn and relish opportunities to participate in our exceptional range of trips, projects and extra-curricular activities. Their parents support and engage with the school and share our vision for their children; to achieve the highest standards of attainment.

Our committed staff inspire success. We provide a well-resourced, innovative curriculum and rich opportunities to ignite a love of learning. This is further enhanced by our accomplished specialist teachers who deliver an exemplary education in their respective disciplines - Music, Art and Design & Technology.

Our state of the art facilities embed learning. Housed in a modern, purpose-built complex, the school has been extended to increase the range of facilities and specialist teaching spaces. Our impressive landscaped 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.

You are warmly invited to visit and find out more.
