A new logo for the new King’s Oak Primary School was revealed this week.

Stephenson Lower School in Bedford will change its name to King’s Oak Primary School as it marks a major redevelopment of the school site.

From September 1, the school will be taking children from age to 2 – 11 years and will be expanding the site of its existing school to include the current Harrowden Middle School site.

The children of Stephenson Lower School, and the Year 5 children at Harrowden Middle School, each designed a logo for King’s Oak Primary School.

The logo competition was judged, at the school on Wednesday, February 26 by Mayor Dave Hodgson, and Cllr Henry Vann, portfolio holder for education. The winner was Chloe Kiss.

The school governors agreed the name change and the new branding comes from the name of the local ward “Kingsbrook” and Oak Road, which will be the new entrance for the school.

Ali England, head teacher of Stephenson Lower School, said: “This is a very exciting time for Stephenson Lower School. As the children are at the heart of everything we do, we thought who better to design a logo for the school than the pupils themselves.”

Cllr Henry Vann, said: “Ofsted have judged this school to be good with outstanding leadership and management, and we have high hopes for the new King’s Oak Primary School.

“We are committed to ensuring that all of our children and young people have access to the highest quality of teaching and learning, and have the best start in life. We will observe the young peoples’ creativity on the day, and are very much looking forward to picking a worthy winner.”
