History of the school

The School was opened in 1974 as a primary, with combined infants and juniors in what is now the infant building.

The building was planned by Mr. John Graham, of Graham and Baldwin Architects. After the main building was opened the school grew very, very quickly and by 1977 there were three hundred children with eleven classes, eight in the main building with three in demountables.

After the school split a separate junior school was built. Mrs. Laverick; Deputy Head of the primary, became Headmistress of the infant school. In September 1977, the junior school was formally opened and there were seven classes. Mr. Barry Davies continued as Headteacher.

After many happy years at the school Mr. Davies retired in 1993, but sadly passed away in the early half of 2010.
