What makes Lickey End First School special?

Our school is situated at the edge of the town of Bromsgrove and serves the community of Lickey End. It has a rural aspect and has the feel of a village school even though it is extremely close to major route ways such as the M42.

Many parents have attended the school as pupils in the past, and we feel that the family atmosphere and friendly, open door policy is a strong feature of the school and the partnership that grows between us.

Lickey End First School is a community school. It offers ‘extended school’ provision and now has an area designated for the use by groups, clubs and societies, both during the school day and out of school hours.

We are very proud of our First School and the education and opportunities it provides for the children and families of Lickey End.

A Brief History

The oldest part of our school was built in Victorian times. It was opened in 1878 following the introduction of universal education. It provided separate education for boys and girls until 1901 when classes became mixed.

The school had a hall and classroom extension added in the 1960’s and recently in 2009 had a further two classroom extension built for the youngest classes in our school, in addition the Victorian parts of the school continue to be modernised. This has meant we are now able to provide state of the art facilities for early years education.
