Current Headteacher: Mr. Les Owen
The School was built in 1877 and has had a few names in it's time.
"Bearpark Council School" was the first of it's many alias's.
When I went to the School it had the long winded name of
"Bearpark Junior Mixed and Infants
School". At present it is called "Bearpark Primary School"
The school logo is an abstract
interpretation of Beaurepaire as it was. Until the late seventies, only a few
of the highest parts of what can be seen now were showing above the earth. Archiologists
dug alot of it up in the seventies and as far as I am aware found nothing. Now
this ancient site has been dug up is endangered by all who visit the site as
well as by the weather.
