New school along Kingsmead Road

All things must come to natural end
And when too old to save or mend
A new replacement comes to stay
Like this 'new' school we see today.
No longer new, I think you'll find,
Its youth is only in our minds,
For many children, now grown-up,
Will tell you when it opened up.

The new school was built on local gardens and also land which had originally been part of the old Wycombe to Bourne End railway line. The old school, on Kingmead Road, was knocked down and replaced with modern housing.
