Administrative history

Cypress Junior Mixed and Infant School was opened on 4 September 1933 in a Methodist Church Hall as South Norwood Temporary School (see records of Cypress Junior School at SCH32).

The School was transferred to a new permanent building on 6 April 1937.

On 31 August 1954 the Infant Department became a separate school on a different site.

In 2010, the Infant and Junior School federated under one Headteacher.
