Balliol is a friendly lower school which lies to the south of the town of Kempston. 

Currently just over 300 children aged between 2 and 9 attend the school where we have 12 classes. Children start in Pre-school and move through to Elm and Oak classes, our Year 4 children. 

Our school ethos is built upon an acknowledgement of the importance of home and school working together in partnership. We have extremely strong links with Pear Tree Children's Centre which shares our school site. 

This year we have extended our provision by joining with Hastingsbury pre-school to provide education for children from 2 to 9. 
The preschool is now known as Balliol pre-school and we are looking forward to the many possibilities that this new venture provides. 

We look forward to welcoming you and your child to our school.
