Brickhill Lower School is a caring community school currently for children between the ages of four and nine. We are a diverse and inclusive school which provides an enjoyable and purposeful learning environment for all pupils.
The buildings of Brickhill Lower School were built in 1960’s as part of the growing neighbourhood known as the ‘Birds area’. The school was then called Brickhill County Infants School and had its official opening day was on Thursday 5th October 1961. However, the school opened to children on 6th September 1960 at 9.00am with 64 children on roll. It consisted of three classes, one of which was a Reception Class.
In 1993 the adjoining Brickhill Middle School merged with Parkwood School to form Beauchamp Middle School. The surrounding area was then sold for housing development but Brickhill Lower School retained a large playing field, several playgrounds and an environmental garden.
In 2010 Brickhill Lower School celebrated its 50th anniversary with a huge pageant held at the Brickhill Baptist Church.
55 years later, as the Brickhill Parish community has grown so have the number of children on roll and we now have just under 300 children, 2 classes per year group including 2 reception classes at foundation stage.
The school has been awarded many accreditations for its participation and high standards in a variety of areas including Healthy Schools, Silver Sports Mark, Eco School Silver Award, Basic Skills in Numeracy and Literacy
For some years now the school has had a good reputation for the academic standards that children attain by the time they leave us, but we are determined not to rest on our past achievements, especially when we become a primary school from September 2017. We will continue to focus not only on raising standards even further but ensuring that all the children are happy, safe and enjoy coming to school.
If you would like to visit us, we would be very pleased to hear from you and to show you around our school. I trust that your association with us will be a long and happy one.
