The London Nautical School
We are incredibly proud of our affiliation to The London Nautical School, based in Southwark, London. As part of our affiliation, the Honourable Company of Master Mariners provides a member who sits as School Governor. Our member is Captain John Freestone, a previous Honourable Company Past Master and alumni of the school.
Situated in the very heart of central London, the school was established over 100 years ago as an educational establishment to help all pupils achieve their full potential, this remains their core purpose. Their aim is for pupils to experience an education that develops all aspects of their personality and encourages them to become well-qualified, secure, happy, young adults able to manage themselves personally, socially, and academically and who are tolerant of difference.
I am incredibly proud to be the Headteacher at LNS, and I am privileged to lead such dedicated staff and fantastic pupils. We provide an education that develops well-rounded young people who are prepared for the opportunities and challenges of their future lives.
Mr Michael Schofield, Headteacher.
They have a dedicated Nautical department that tries to enrich their pupils in experiencing maritime skills and activities. Students in the sixth form can study maritime studies alongside their normal choices of A level subjects. This attracts students wishing to go to sea as well as students interested in maritime law, business or just love water sports. Sixth form students can study two maritime courses: STCW basic training and a level 3 BTEC in sailing and water sports.

George Green's School
We are also incredibly proud of our affiliation to George Green’s School, based in East London. As part of our affiliation, the Honourable Company of Master Mariners provides a member who sits as School Governor. Our member is Commander Les Chapman RN, our current Senior Warden.
Over 180 years old, George Green’s School is named after a successful shipbuilder; who began his career as an apprentice at the Blackwell Yard in 1782, before marrying his employer’s daughter.
George Green used his wealth on charitable works and founded alms houses, sailors’ homes, a chapel and schools. Since the first school was built in 1828, the school has undergone many changes, passing through stages of an Elementary and Grammar school from 1928, before becoming the secondary school for the Isle of Dogs with its first comprehensive intake in 1975. Our vision for the future of George Green’s School is to be an exceptional school at the heart of the community, with strong business links and secure pathways to further education and employment.
My vision for the future of George Green’s School is to continue on our upward trajectory of success and growing from strength to strength; I am very ambitious for our students and would like more of them to progress to our sixth form to continue their journey. I also look forward to our provision being recognised as Outstanding by Ofsted.
