Edward Peake C of E (VC) Middle School has undergone significant expansion in the last five years. We are fortunate to occupy a spacious building with ample playing fields.  The school is light, well-planned, and well supplied with exciting resources.

The first phase of the building was completed in 1975 and the Year 5 and 6 classroom block in 1980. In September 2016, we officially opened a new two storey accommodation block with relocated administration, a two court sports hall with associated changing facilities; four state of the art teaching rooms; a bus turning area, and an extended hard play area. The original hall and gym space have been combined to provide a much-improved dining, worship, and performance space.

September 2020 saw the opening of a brand new two storey extension and refurbishment of existing school facilities. Facilities that we now very proudly offer:

  • 5 science labs, 4 of which are brand new this year
  • Dedicated textiles room
  • A new food technology room
  • A larger, dedicated library
  • A specialist dance/drama studio
  • A new computing suite
  • 7 new classrooms and numerous small group rooms
  • 2 new music practice rooms
  • Dedicated SEND facility in the form of ‘The Peake’
  • Secure site in the form of turning circle and gate security.

Our outdoor sports facilities include tennis courts, a hard games area, a large field with space for four pitches, or a full-sized athletic track and long jump pits. The football pitches are floodlit.
