History of Park Street Church of England Primary School

  Park Street is a small Church of England Primary School in the centre of Cambridge. There are around 120 children on roll, between the ages of 4 and 11.

The school was opened on 1 October 1877 on its present site. It is one of the four Church Schools of Cambridge, known locally as "the Old Schools". Rejoicing in its Christian foundation, the school is part of a family of 81 Church of England primary schools in the Diocese of Ely.
The Church Schools of Cambridge (formerly "The Old Schools") and the Diocese each appoint three governors to the Governing Body to express their commitment to the education and development of the pupils at the school. Park Street has a long tradition of welcoming into the school the families of local residents and celebrating the variety of the religious traditions which they bring.

Situated right in the centre of the city, the school is within walking distance of the interesting local spaces of Jesus Green, Midsummer Common and the River Cam. The School is ideally placed to make extensive use of the colleges, art galleries, libraries, museums and other resources maintained by the university and the city.
