Administrative/Biographical history:

The Peterborough Schools for Girls, Boys and Infants, were opened on 26 August 1901 by the School Board for London. From 1905, the site included an Invalid School. This section of the school was transferred to and amalgamated with the invalid school at Queensmill Road School, Lysia Street, Fulham, in 1939. It was relocated to Peterborough School in 1992, but remained known as Queensmill School.

Peterborough School was evacuated in August 1939, and reopened on 27 October 1942. In September 1969 the boys' and girls' schools amalgamated to form Peterborough Junior Mixed School, and in 1983, the junior and infant schools amalgamated. By 1992, the school was known as Peterborough Primary School. The school was closed in July 2008.
