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.
