St Mary Magdalene C of E Primary School

St Mary Magdalene C of E School and Christ Church C of E Primary School

Do unto others as you would have done unto you.

We are a Federation of two schools located over four sites working as one team

ST Mary Magdalene C of E School is successful and popular, judged outstanding by Ofsted in Autumn 2012. In April 2013 the school became the lead school in a collaboration with Christ Church School in East Greenwich. Since this time there have been two Co-Headteachers who now lead the Koinonia Federation of schools.

There are three St. Mary Magdalene sites. On the Woolwich site there are two forms of entry across the primary phase in all year groups from Nursery to Year Six.  On the Peninsula site there is currently one Reception classes, two Year 1 classes and one year 2 class, with a planned admission number and capacity of 60 places per year age group which will increase year on year. There will also be a Nursery on the site from September 2018.  The school expansion will result in a total of 840 primary places by 2020.  Christ Church School is a one-form entry primary school with 30 places available in each year group.

In September 2016 St. Mary Magdalene welcomed its first intake of year 7 students on a temporary campus in Blackheath where the secondary phase will operate for two years. The roll will then build so that the school would be fully operational for year groups 7 to 11 by September 2020.  It is also proposed to establish a sixth form provision from September 2018, providing 300 places for pupils aged 16-19. We are currently developing our brand new, innovative and inspirational building on the Greenwich Peninsula that will provide a wide range of creative spaces and facilities.

As a Church of England federation we welcome staff, pupils and parents from all faiths but expect all employees to have regard for our Christian values that are demonstrated through the taught and non-taught curriculum.
