Originally opened in 1877 as Star Lane Board School the original building was two schoolrooms and an attached Schoolmaster's house. These buildings form the core of the present school, facing onto Abbey Road. In the 20th century it became known as Bourne Council Junior School when the responsibility of school boards was assumed by local councils, and later as Bourne County Primary School.
Following the expansion of the town in the 1960s and the opening of a new primary school in the west of the town, this school became Abbey Road Primary School.
In 1995 the school was the first Primary School to opt out of county status and become Grant Maintained, becoming Bourne Abbey Primary School. It was one of the first schools to introduce on-site nursery education under the same funding.
Today, the school is an academy.
