Mount Pleasant Lane School

Front View, Mount Pleasant Lane
Mount Pleasant Lane JMI (or MPL as it is most commonly known) is a wonderful, lively part of the community of Bricket Wood.  The majority of local children attend the school and many stay in touch after they have left to go on to some of the excellent secondary schools in the area.

The original school was built in 1935, the same time that major residential development started in Bricket Wood. In 1965, the infant school was opened and the two schools met the needs of the community until their amalgamation in 1989. The original junior school was rebuilt in 1993.

MPL School has therefore been an integral part of the Bricket Wood community for as long as, modern Bricket Wood has been in existence and even more so since the increased level of expansion from the 1980s onwards with younger families moving into the village. 

Today, MPL is a Junior Mixed Infant school and Nursery with some 350 pupils ranging from 3 – 11 years. An active Parent Teacher Association organises a number of functions, activities and fund raising events during the year, many of which are held in the school and Grounds. 
If you are new to the area or have never visited, please contact the school office and come and see the fabulous things that our children achieve.  We are also keen to encourage volunteers from the community to come in and support us by hearing children read or offering particular skills.  If you are interested and willing to have the essential CRB check, please contact us.
