Woolmore School

Celebration film for Woolmore School's old building

Woolmore School is based in Poplar, East London, an area currently seeing a vast amount of redevelopment. This has led to the school needing to increase the amount of students it can accomodate, and so the decision was made to build a brand new school, which sadly leads to the demolition of the current school building, a beautiful neo-Georgian design. The school has been working with arts educators Bow Arts and as part of this partnership, they commissioned a film to celebrate and document the building before it disappears. Along with interviews of current students and teachers, there is also the chance to hear from past pupils of the school and their memories of the old East End.
