St Piran's is a prep school located on Gringer Hill in Maidenhead, Berkshire, England. The school was known as Cordwalles School until 1919 and has been co-educational since the 1990s.

History

The origin of St Piran's was in 1805 at a small school, the Revd John Potticary's school in Blackheath, at 2–3 Eliot Place.[1] After moving to its present location in 1872, it operated as a boys' boarding school under the name of Cordwalles School until 1919.[2] Up to this time, it was among a group of preparatory schools — which included Stubbington House School and Eastman's Royal Naval Academy — that maintained strong connections with the Royal Navy.[3] In that year, 1919, the school was bought by Major Vernon Seymour Bryant who renamed it St Piran's. It reopened in 1920 with 23 boys, increasing to 65 the following year.[2]

After becoming an educational trust in 1972, the school became co-educational in 1993, and boarding ended the same year.[2] In 2005, St. Piran's celebrated its 200th anniversary with a bicentennial pageant. In 2008 a new geography room and lower school hall were completed.
