Our School

There has been a school on this site since 1785 when a lease of land was made to the church for a school. The school badge reflects this. The oldest building on site is the 1872 building known to us as "the Church Building".


This community school with Nursery caters for boys and girls from 3-11 years of age (Nursery to Year 6).

The current roll for the school is 420, plus a total of 60 places in the Nursery.

The school is situated in the south of the London Borough of Havering and is set in spacious grounds.

There are two large playgrounds, and a playing field.


Children are admitted to the main school full time in the first half of the Autumn Term following their fourth birthday.


From Reception Year to Year 6 we are able to admit 60 pupils in each year group. Children are admitted into the Nursery in the first half of the Autumn Term following their third birthday. An admissions criterion applies and is available from the School Office.


The Head teacher welcomes visits from prospective parents to both the Nursery and the main school.


A full uniform list is contained in our Parents' Handbook and on the uniform page of the website.
