Our School History

Our School is 81 years old!

Before being called Mottingham Primary School, we were called Ravensworth Road School and had an infant and junior school, as well as a secondary school!


The first of the schools opened on Monday, 11th September 1939, just a few days after the beginning of World War Two, which affected attendance significantly.


The school had to wait until 1940 for the air raid shelters to be built! Below, you can see an array of diary entries from the Headteacher's diary from the World War 2 period.


The current school building was initially the infant school and in 1997, it was renovated and made bigger to accommodate the primary school. Below is what it looked like before the new section was build in the 00's.
