Parish is the oldest London Borough of Bromley's Educational Establishment, dating back to a 1716 Charity Foundation.

Two and a half centuries of educational history are reflected in its development.

In September 1986 the school transferred, along with the pupils and staff of St Mary's Church of England Primary School, to a renovated eighteenth century mansion known as Plaistow Lodge. This is a listed building which stands in its own grounds in London Lane.
