Eliot Wong
Headteacher

Mr Wong has always liked science, technology and taking examinations. After graduating from Kings College London with a mathematics and computing degree he spent an enjoyable year in Birmingham learning circus skills and how to teach secondary school children.  Skills that came in handy in Australia when he juggled jobs teaching rugby and mathematics during the week and working at the fairground in Sydney at weekends.  He still loves travelling but refuses to live anywhere without a tube and thinks that London is the best city in the world!
