Eastbury Community School, located at Hulse Avenue in Barking, Essex (IG11 9UW), is a dynamic and comprehensive institution embracing students from ages 3 to 19. As a co-educational all-through school and sixth form, it provides a seamless educational journey in a single setting.

Founded in 1931, Eastbury has undergone several transformations, from its initial establishment as Eastbury Secondary School to its present incarnation as Eastbury Community School. With the merging of Eastbury Comprehensive School and a primary school provision, the site has expanded, solidifying Eastbury's status as one of the largest schools in the area.

In addition to offering a traditional education, Eastbury is tech-savvy, with the Sixth Form boasting a Cisco Networking Academy, and having been the first school in Barking and Dagenham to institute a cashless payment system. The school grounds have also been prominently featured in the BBC children's TV drama M.I. High.

Eastbury's alumni include a number of notable individuals, including Ian and Jamie McNaughton, members of Britain's Got Talent-winning dance troupe Diversity, comedian Sara Pascoe, professional footballers Bobby Moore, John Terry, Yunus Musah, and Jack Baldwin.

The school follows a non-selective admissions policy and is led by Headteacher Sharon Gladman. As of the latest data, the school capacity is 2236, with 2160 pupils enrolled, representing a diverse population with 26.4% of children eligible for free school meals.
