Brief History of Millbrook Combined School

The main Mill End Road school building was constructed in 1936 and was called Mill End Secondary School.  Originally the north side of the building was for girls and the south side was for boys.

In 1973, the school became Sands County Middle School for pupils between 8 and 12 years old.

However in September 1998, a change in the age of secondary school transfer meant that the school became a Junior School, with pupils aged 7-11.

During September 1999, the amalgamation of Sands Junior, Sands First School and Green Street First saw the formation of a brand new school, Millbrook Combined School, on the site of Sands Junior.
