Description

An independent school for boys and girls aged from 7 to 18. 

Bancroft’s School was founded by the Drapers’ Company in 1737 on the Mile End Road as a day-school for local boys from a diverse range of backgrounds; the School has come a long way geographically and institutionally since then but the School remains committed to enabling pupils from a wide range of backgrounds to enjoy our education and has a long tradition of excellence.
We are now a co-educational independent day school for around a1000 pupils from 7 to 18 and an unashamedly aspirational school, devoted to scholarship and intellectual inquiry.
