AdminHistoryAdministrative History
Guardian Angels Roman Catholic Church was opened in 1868 in a former independent church known as Salem Chapel. The church was rebuilt between 1901 and 1903.
It is not clear exactly at what date the school(s) were established. The Ordnance Survey map of 1870 shows a building marked "School" adjoining the rear of the church building. The surviving log books begin in 1874 but evidently the schools were already in existence. The present school buildings date from c.1894.
The school seems originally to have been divided into Boys and Girls and Infants Departments. In 1944 the school was reorganised as a mixed school with separate Infants Department. In August 1955 the school became a Junior Mixed and Infants School.

The Guardian Angels Primary School is based at Whitman Rd, Globe Town, London E3 4RB before it closed. In 2020 the school was merged with St Anne's Roman Catholic Primary School, becoming St Anne's and Guardian Angels Primary School located at Underwood Road, Whitechapel, London, E1 5AW.

The school was associated with Good Shepherd School Roman Catholic Infants School, Stepney Square
