HistoryEdit

The school opened in Newport Pagnell in 1970 before moving in 1987 to its current purpose built site in Stantonbury in the north of Milton Keynes.[3] In 2010 current and former pupils produced an exhibition chronicling the history of the school[4] and the former Knoll School (1892-1974).[5] The Knoll School buildings at Aspley Guise were home to the Bury Lawn senior school between 1977-1987. Bury Lawn was renamed the Webber Independent School in September 2011 in honour of the urban designer and 'father of the city' of Milton Keynes, Melvin M. Webber.[6]
