The Catholic Ursuline Sisters came from Holland to Forest Gate in 1862 and established this school on a large piece of land. The walled garden has been preserved and developed despite the growing demand for space from the school and it is tended two days a week. As well as one of the oldest flowering tulip trees in the south of England, it contains many religious icons and provides a refuge for the school's staff and students who come from a variety of different cultures and backgrounds.
The garden will open to the public on Saturday June 14 as part of Open Garden Squares Weekend. Sixth-form students will conduct tours of the garden and give a brief history of the school.
