The first mention of a school in Ruislip was in 1655. The Church of England School attached to St Martin's Church dates back to around 1812 when it was housed in wooden buildings. In 1862 a permanent building was erected in Eastcote Road. BWI School was built on this site when the population grew and it was officially opened by Bishop Winnington-Ingram, Bishop of London, on 15th July 1931. In 1967 the school moved to a larger site in Southcote Rise and became a two form entry school in 1996, now providing education for over 400 children.
