The school, in Loxford Lane, held a competition to name the new development, with Everygreen House being the winning entry.
Housing cabinet member Cllr Farah Hussain said: “Historically Redbridge has had one of the lowest house building rates in London. That is why one of the council’s highest priorities is to secure affordable housing in the borough to meet the needs of our residents.
“We are pleased to lead an ambitious affordable house building programme which will contribute towards increasing the supply of much needed affordable homes to meet our local housing need.”
