The William Hogarth School opened in October 2001 and is sited in the building of the old Hogarth Primary School. Eager not to lose any connections with Hogarth, famous Chiswick resident, artist and philanthropist, we have reflected the link in our school logo, a paint palette, and naming each of our classes after famous painters. They are also recognised in the art work of the school and the value put on artistic and creative activities. The school is a community school and is committed to working in partnership with all members of the community.
The school is a bright, spacious building with two large halls and ongoing programme of work to meet the needs of our growing school community. It has a large and well equipped stock of ICT equipment, with enough computers for a whole class to work on their computer skills together. The school has a purpose built art room which was donated by the artist Sir Peter Blake and designed by his wife Chrissie. A library is available for the children to borrow books. There are two playgrounds featuring an adventure climbing frame, playground seating, a ball court for team games and a wildlife and conservation area.
