We are researching our History!

Originally established by William Bliss in his will dated September 1674 to provide an educational establishment in Nether Heyford. This was to be funded by an initial sum of £400: £100 to buy the schoolroom and £300 to be invested in agricultural land to provide for the upkeep of the school. The last piece of land still held is between Church Street, Church Lane and Weedon Road.

A schoolroom was purchased in 1681 on the current school site. This original building was sited, to the best of our knowledge, where the current mobile classroom is situated. This original building was opened in 1683 and was used until the ‘new’ building was erected in 1880. The old schoolroom fell into disrepair and on instruction from the trustees demolished in the late 1960’s. NB if anyone reading this page has a photograph of the old schoolroom the trustees would love a copy for our school archives.
