Faraday is a small, independent prep school situated at the historic setting of Trinity Buoy Wharf, close to the City and Canary Wharf.

Faraday School is committed to giving every child a first-class education in the arts and sciences, drawing as a resource upon the Core Knowledge approach, which imparts knowledge through traditional academic subjects.

Although we believe in a traditional approach, our lessons reflect modern thinking on how children learn most effectively and our small classes and quality staff allow for a very personal approach to learning.

We feel literacy and numeracy are important, however, our curriculum is broad and stimulating, including specialist teaching in French, Music and Physical Education. Our aim is to educate the whole child through a rich curriculum with many stimuli, in order to support an atmosphere of life-long learning.

We also provide a wide range of after school clubs and, to help working parents, a private school bus runs before and after school from 22 different locations, including south of the river.

We were founded in 2009 and maintain strong links with our sister school, Maple Walk, in North West London. Our setting beside the River Thames, opposite the iconic O2 arena and beside the Trinity Lighthouse, gives our pupils an inspirational location in which to learn. We are fortunate enough to be surrounded by creative industries and we make the best of all that London has to offer, with regular trips to museums, historic attractions and galleries.

Our June 2014 ISI Inspection found Faraday School pupil attainment to be "well-above national age-rated expectations."
