Plashet is a popular girls’ secondary school, which draws students from across the London Borough of Newham and from neighbouring boroughs. The school is housed in two buildings on opposite sides of Plashet Grove, linked by the award-winning Plashet Unity Bridge. East Ham Tube Station and High Street North are within five minutes’ walk of the school. Plashet has a long history dating back to 1932 when the East Ham Grammar School for Girls first opened on the South site. In the 1950s, the North site was built and Plashet County Secondary Modern School for Girls was opened. These two schools were amalgamated into Plashet School in 1972 and the two sites were physically linked by the Unity Bridge in November 2000. This has provided a safer and quicker way to cross the very busy street separating the buildings
