A BRIEF HISTORY OF OUR SCHOOL
Beaconsfield Primary School is a thriving community school in the heart of the vibrant Southall community. Our school is located in a large Victorian building and we are very fortunate to have many specialist rooms for activities such as music, science, art & design, ICT and an Adult Learning space.
The school at one time had three forms of entry and additional buildings. As new schools were built these were removed to give us a grassy field and a larger playground. A nursery was added several years ago and now the school provides a single form of entry primary and nursery school with 252 pupils on roll.
The school was formed in 1908 as a high school for girls. From 1916 to 1919 the school was used as a hospital to treat over 7000 wounded Australian soldiers from the battlefields of World War 1. After the hospital use the school was converted into a mixed junior and infant school. The school is now a mixed primary and nursery school.
