St Joseph’s School in Wanstead was closed down earlier this month having failed to find a new owner.

“It is with the deepest sadness that the trustees of the Institute of Our Lady of Mercy have reluctantly taken the decision to close the school. We know there were hopes the school could be saved and a new owner found who would continue the school’s unique ethos. However, despite our best efforts, sadly, we have not been able to find a viable alternative to closure,” said Chair of the Trustees Sister Colette.
