The school opened in September 2008, 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. Its creation was part of Waltham Forest borough’s £200 million 'Building Schools for the Future' programme.
Frederick Bremer School currently has a six form intake for children aged 11–16 (years 7–11). The Headteacher is Jenny Smith. There are roughly 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'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 good Ofsted review and is making very good progress in all areas with a view to becoming an outstanding school.
The school's results for GCSEs in 2016 were slightly below the National average, and were even further below the Local average. 56% of students achieved a C or above in either Maths or English. This is below the country average of 59.3% and the Local average of 63.6%
