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, our Year 4 classes. 

Our school ethos is built upon an acknowledgement of the importance of home and school working together in partnership. We benefit from having a children's centre on-site and work closely with the staff from Pear Tree. 

We are fortunate to have our own preschool on site. Our Seedlings takes children from the age of two. For more information about a place or funding please contact the school office.

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