History of the School

The School comes from a long tradition of academic excellence dating back to the 1800’s . It was later run as a boarding school during World War II for children evacuating from London to escape the Blitz.

In 1970 the school was sold and operated as a junior school until 1976 when the proprietor also bought the Knoll in Aspley Guise and used the site to establish a Senior School.

In 1987, the junior and senior schools combined onto the current site in Stantonbury Fields, and then later in 2003 the school was bought by GEMS Education.  Significant investment ensued and the School received a brand new and impressively equipped sports hall in 2005 as well as fully refurbished modern science labs in 2006.

It was in 2011, that, The Webber Independent School opened its doors for the first time renamed after the urban designer and theorist responsible for Milton Keynes’ unique design, Melvin M. Webber popularly known as “the father of the city.”

The school name and logo were selected and designed by students, parents, and people from the local community.

Now as the highest performing school in the town, The Webber Independent School stands for excellence and achievement.
