Why are we "Edward Peake"

Edward Peake C of E (VC) Middle School was named in honour of a local philanthropist who, in the days when education was by no means a right for our local children, made a permanent bequest by which a school teacher could be paid and children from poor families receive an education.
Although little else is known about Edward Peake, it is right that his generosity and far-sightedness is commemorated in the name of our school. Edward Peake Church of England Middle School has served the communities of Biggleswade, Caldecote, Dunton, Northill and Ickwell for forty years and has always had a reputation for inclusiveness.
