The school is situated in the Small Heath area of Birmingham, approximately 3 miles from the city centre, and is situated close to many local amenities including supermarkets, parks, libraries and leisure facilities.
The Infant School shares a site with Marlborough Junior School. Both schools are housed within the same building and have a shared playground.
The current building opened over 100 years ago on Monday 14th November 1898 as Yardley Road Board School and was managed at the time by Head Master Mr Alfred Flavell.
It was designed and built by Birmingham-based Victorian architects Martin and Chamberlain, who are known for their distinctive red brick buildings, gothic style and visible iron work. Other buildings deisgned by Martin and Chamberlain include St John's Church in Sparkhill and many of the similar-styled buildings along Corporation Street in Birmingham City Centre.
