Frederick Bremer School opened in September 2008 as a coeducational secondary school, replacing Warwick School for Boys and Aveling Park School. The school, which is named after local inventor Frederick William Bremer, officially opened on 29 April 2009.

The school[edit]

Frederick Bremer School currently has a six form intake for children aged 11–16 (years 7–11). The Headteacher is Ms J Smith. There are 900 students, and it has quickly earned a reputation for an excellent sports selection. Both football and cricket leagues have been won by Bremer, and the cricket team placed 4th in London.

Frederick Bremer School runs a finger-print based scanning system that is also used in other Waltham Forest schools and council services. The card is used to pay for lunch and school trips with top-up machines near to the entrance of the school.

The school will be starring in Channel 4's educating series later this year, under the name of "Educating Walthamstow"

The school's facilities are available for the local and wider community to hire. Facilities include Sports, Arts, Drama and Educational spaces open during the evenings, weekends and school holidays. It consistently holds a satisfactory Ofsted review and needs improvement in a variety of areas.
