In stock


By Nadine Hygate

Throughout the years the school has had various names depending on who in the main has been responsible for its existence. When additions were made to extend the original building was also a factor. In its long life the school had been known by five different names.

Originally the school was called “The Crawley & Ifield Charity School”. Some 20 years later, “The National School”. By 1990 it had become “Crawley Church of England School”.

With the coming of the new town development, and many new school buildings in the area, the name was once again changed to “St. Peters C. of E. School”.

With the influx of pupils in the vicinity, and no room to extend the existing building, the school was moved to new premises with playing fields, and took the name of “St. Margarets C. of E. School”.
