Latimer School was built to accommodate the growing population of Burton Latimer, and many residents of the town sent their children to the school. As the town grew, so did the school.
New buildings include a block for Mathematics, Science and Staff Accomodation, a Sports Hall, Library and Sixth Form Block. Original buildings have been adaptedto provide additional space for teaching English, Commerce, Art, Pottery and Home Economics, a Modern Languages Suite, a Careers Room and a larger School Office.
Work began in Aprill 1979, with the new School Office completed in September, and further work completed in September 1980 and January 1981. The last area to be handed over was the Pottery Studio in April 1981. Pupils also raised money to provide additional facilities for the playground such as park benches.
This work increased the capacity of the school from 600 to 900 pupils. The programme listed all staff & governors of the school at the time.
