We are so pleased to finally be able to share our fantastic Plashet 100 Exhibition with you.

The Exhibition

Behind the Scenes

It has really been a work of heart with our former student and current Governor, Meg Khan leading us on a very exciting journey of celebration.

Dear Plashet students, parents & carers,

The school day ends at 12.30pm on Wednesday 27th September as we hold our annual open evening for Year 6 families.

This also means there will be no lesson 6 for Year 11 on this day.

Parents and carers are asked to please ensure they know what time to expect their daughter and that she comes straight home from her early school finish and is not hanging around the High Street or Plashet Park.

Yours faithfully,

Mrs McGowan

Head Teacher
Plashet School

URGENT Sports Day cancelled

Dear Plashet staff, students, parents & carers,

It is with regret that I have taken the decision to cancel Sports Day today due to the high likelihood of rain during the time we would be at the stadium.

School will run as normal today – starting at 8.45am and finishing at 3.35pm

It is Friday Week B so please arrive at school by 8.45am with the correct books and equipment.

Kind regards,

Mrs McGowan

Our School will close at 12.30pm on the following dates:

Wednesday 8th March 2023 – Year 9
Thursday 23rd March 2023 – Year 7

Dear Plashet students, parents and carers,

Tomorrow, Wednesday 14th December, is a normal school day.

Students should arrive at school for 8.45am and will leave at the normal time of 3.35pm.

Given pavements in the local area remain icy students are permitted to wear footwear with good grip such as trainers, wellingtons or boots.

With warm regards,

Mrs Rachel McGowan
Head Teacher
Plashet School

Today, Mrs McGowan was accompanied by three of our Student Leadership Team to sign the Book of Condolence at East Ham Library.

Zhara, our Head Girl, and Isha and Tara, both Deputy Head Girls signed on behalf of all the students at Plashet School.

It is our sincere hope that you are able to find a moment of quiet reflection on the upcoming Bank Holiday on Monday 19th September.

Dear students, parents and carers,

The news this evening that Queen Elizabeth II has passed away is extremely sad and I am sure that your thoughts and prayers like mine are with her family at this difficult time.

However, Plashet is open tomorrow.

All students are expected to be in school for registration as normal.

When Buckingham Palace announces details of her majesty’s state funeral we will know more about whether schools will close as a mark of respect. This decision will be taken at a national level. I will update you all once I know more.

Yours faithfully,

Mrs McGowan

We will be closing at 12.30 pm on Tuesday 19th July 2022 and opening again on Monday 5th September 2022.

All students are aware that they can wear non-uniform on Tuesday 19th July and that £1 contributions to our charity drive for Great Ormond Street Hospital, Rewilding Britain and Supporting Humanity can be made between Monday 11th July and Monday 18th July via our online payment portal, ParentMail.

We wish all our students and their families a restful break and look forward to seeing Years 7 to 11 on site again on Monday 5th September.

Current Year 11 will be on site for GCSE Results Day on Thursday 25th August.


On Thursday 7th July we are hosting our new intake of Year 7 students on site.

Students should arrive for a 8.50am start on the North side of our school site.

Students will need to bring snacks for Break, their pencil case and a bottle of water/drink. They will not be participating in any PE, so do not require any sports kit.

Students will leave from the North playground gate on Plashet Grove at 3pm and we ask that parents wait on the opposite pavement to ease congestion and allow flow of movement along the pavement. We would also remind parents that driving should be avoided, as Plashet Grove is both a busy road and on several bus routes, so there is no parking available

Further information can be found in our Admissions section of our website.

On Thursday 30th June, Years 7 – 10 will be participating in our Sports Day at The Terence McMillan Stadium. Students should make their own way to the venue for a 8.50am start.

Students will need plenty of water, snacks and a hat/sunscreen in case of hot weather.

We will be finishing at approximately 12.30pm. Please be advised that the car park will be very congested, so we advise all parents/carers to make alternative arrangements to collect their daughter.

Should there be inclement weather, we will publish on our website and our Twitter account along with emailing families.
