Mrs Jane Gray, the school's second lay headteacher led the school through the complete rebuild of the school as part of the 'Building Schools for the Future' programme. This included a two year period where Mrs Gray oversaw the school as split site institution; year 7&8 remained on the original site whilst years 9 to 13 were at a site on Mount Pleasant Lane. The culmination of this project was the incredible, modern building the school now occupies on Amhurst Park. Mrs Gray saw the school build on its academic achievements and remain one of the highest performing schools in Hackney.
