Welcome to the Davenant Foundation School website. At Davenant, we value the long history of the school which stretches back to the work of our founder, Ralph Davenant, in the East End of London during the 17th Century. This still provides an inspiration for us and sits alongside our absolute commitment to provide the best for our community in the 21st Century.
Every school has a unique history and character. We think it is important to know how the school has developed as well as the way in which the school operates today. The Governors and Senior Staff of the school have worked out policies and procedures as a result of both national requirements and the need to have clear guidelines which all members of the school community can understand.
With reference to the management of the school, the last Ofsted report noted that “there is a very strong sense of purpose in the school as a result of the shared vision which has been developed”.
