The Church of England has established and maintained schools for the people of London for hundreds of years. In 1924, the London Diocesan Board for Schools was set up to be the educational arm of the London Diocese. With 90 years of experience, running over 150 schools in London’s local authorities, our schools have successfully provided excellent education to a range of communities of different faiths, including schools where the majority of children come from families of other faiths, or none. All children, of all backgrounds are welcome.
