Our History

Edmonton County School was founded in 1919.

The school has gone by the following names over the years:

  • Edmonton Central School
  • Edmonton County Secondary School
  • Edmonton County Grammar School
  • Edmonton School
  • Edmonton County School

Edmonton County has operated as a Grammar school, Secondary School and in 2014 we opened a primary phase to our school and this brought about Edmonton County as an ‘all-through’ school teaching children from ages4-18.

The school can also be considered as a successor to Rowantree Secondary Modern, itself opened as a replacement for Raglan Secondary Modern and Croyland Secondary Modern.

This photograph is from 1941 and clearly shows the Cambridge Campus, much as it looks today.

In September 2016 Edmonton County School became the founding school in Edmonton Academy Trust.

In 2019 the School will be celebrating its Centenary.
