About our School
Bletchley Park Primary School is situated in a new subdivision in Southern River and first opened in February 2008 with 190 students from Kindergarten to Year 7. In 2016 our enrolment exceeded 1000 students.
The ethos of our school is:
- a place of excellence where students can achieve full potential in their academic,creative, personal, physical, social and emotional development.
- a safe, caring environment where students and adults feel valued as individuals.
- a place where values are promoted and students learn to respect themselves, others and their environment.
- a partnership between students, parents, staff and the community as a whole.
In 2009 our school was one of the first 34 state schools selected to become an Independent Public School. This was a great honour for the school and a true reflection on the excellence we strive for.
Our specialist programs include music, physical education and science. We also operate two specialist classes for our more academically talented students.
Bletchley Park Primary School has been described as a school with a true community feel. It is a school that parents want to send their children, and a school in which teachers want to teach.
What's in a name?
Originally established in the early 1950s as Dawson Stud Farm, in recent times it has been home to the celebrated racehorse, Bletchley Park, which inspired the name for the estate. Go back in history and there was also the famous Bletchley Park just outside London, where wartime code-breakers worked to crack the Enigma machine.
