History of The School

The site for the school was bought in 1894.  A temporary iron structure was put up in 1897 and the school opened in 1898 as a combined Junior and Infant School.  The present main junior school building was completed in 1900, and the infants building opened in 1908. We are responsible for the education of approximately 690 children from nursery age until they are ready to transfer to secondary school.  In 2008, Rosendale Children’s Centre opened in its own building situated within the school’s grounds.
