The school was built in 1878 and comprised the Headteacher’s house and a main building. Further extensions have been built over the years to include inside toilets and a new classroom. We now have three class bases -one of which is a mobile – Class one is for Reception and Year 1 pupils, Class 2 is for Years 2 and 3 pupils and Class 3 is made up of Years 4,5 & 6 children. Although we don’t have a hall of our own, we are able to hire the village hall on the site next door for PE, dance and productions etc.
The Governing Bodies of our school, Grove House Infant & Nursery School, Kings Park Infant School, Beeston Primary, Northgate High School and Dereham Sixth Form College submitted an application to the Department for Education to form a multi-academy trust, ‘Unity Education Trust’ (UET). That application was approved and the decision was taken to convert. We are pleased to announce that on the 1st March 2017 the schools successfully converted to Academies and, at the same time, jointly formed Unity Education Trust.
