About the P.W.E.T.


The Phyllis Wallbank Educational Trust (P.W.E.T.) was formed in 1964 by Phyllis not only to enable the purchase of the Gatehouse School building at Sewardstone Road in Bethnal Green, but also to ensure that the school and her educational ideas would survive in perpetuity, run along the lines of 'The Wallbank Plan.'

The Gatehouse Educational Trust was formed subsequently to run the School as a separate entity with limited liability to ensure that the P.W.E.T. would survive despite any financial setbacks a school could possibly suffer.
