Central Foundation Girls' School is one of the oldest schools in London and has its roots in the City of London. The original school was founded in 1726 to provide education for the children of Huguenot refugees who had settled in the East End of London. In 1891, the school split into separate boys and girls schools both serving the children of the East End of London. CFGS moved to Bow in East London from its site in Spital Square, Bishopsgate in 1975.

It changed from being a city selective girls' school to become a comprehensive girls' school after it amalgamated with a local girls' modern school in Bow. It is an allability school, which serves the East London Community within Tower Hamlets, Newham and Hackney. Today Central Foundation is a large, oversubscribed, inclusive and successful girls' school based in Bow, East London.

We cater for 1533 girls aged 11-19, providing a dynamic and constantly improving learning environment against a background of high social deprivation, a diverse school population with greater than average learning and language needs.

CFGS is a Voluntary Aided Comprehensive School and its charitable foundation is the Central Foundation Schools of London Trust. It is linked with the Central Foundation Boys' School in Islington. The school also works in partnership for the benefit of students with a variety of business partners and mentoring groups.
The school is part of an independent state school partnership and fosters close links with a number of feeder primary schools. The school currently is a partner school in a Schools Direct Teacher Training initiative ?City Excellence'. The school is a Leading Edge school (SSAT) and affiliated to the Mulberry Teaching School alliance.

The energy and determination of the teaching and support staff, who strive to provide the students with the opportunities to succeed and to become well-educated and confident young women, is a major factor in the school's achievement to date. It continues to develop, both as a community in its own right and as part of local, national and international learning communities.
