School History

Established in 1905, Raddlebarn Primary School has been an integral part of Selly Oak. In its history the school has been through many changes; two World Wars, several epidemics which have closed the school down more than once!
Times have changed since its first Headteacher, Miss Clulee with her two assistants, opened on the 17th February with an amazing 205 pupils! Thank goodness staffing ratios are much improved now.
Even today when walking around the school, there is lots of evidence of its history. Above the doors you may notice the entrances are marked with signs that date back to when it was first opened. There is also an old war memorial from the First World War, of the boys and teacher who were killed during this time.
