Edmonton County School was founded in 1919.
The school has gone by the following names over the years:
- Edmonton Central School
- Edmonton County Secondary School
- Edmonton County Grammar School
- Edmonton School
- Edmonton County School
Edmonton County has operated as a Grammar school, Secondary School and in 2014 we opened a primary phase to our school, and this brought about Edmonton County as an ‘all-through’ school teaching children from ages 4-18.
The school can also be considered as a successor to Rowantree Secondary Modern, itself opened as a replacement for Raglan Secondary Modern and Croyland Secondary Modern.

The current Lea Valley Academy was founded in 1977 as Bullsmoor School, a purpose-built comprehensive school. It was later renamed Lea Valley High School.
Lea Valley High School became the first specialist sports college in Enfield in September 2002. The school was re-built in 2003 and work was finished in 2006.
Lea Valley Academy joined EdAcT in October 2019.
Edmonton County Primary School
The Primary school was opened in September 2014 to children of Reception age. Due to pressure on school places, shortly after, we welcomed children into year 1. In 2020 the first group of children from our primary school progressed to the secondary school.
The school is led by Mrs Erini Franciosa, the inaugural Head of the primary school.
Salmons Brook School (SEMH)
In 2018 we were granted permission by the Secretary of State for Education to open a Free Special School. The new school opened in September 2022 and is called Salmons Brook School.
The school is led by Mr Andrew Lloyd.
Konrad Halls Centre
The Konrad Halls Centre is planned to open in September 2023. It will provide a base for the therapeutic services including our in-house Educational Psychologist, Dr Jack Upton.
