The Webber Independent School[1]) is a coeducational independent school situated in Stantonbury, in the north of Milton Keynes, England, owned by GEMS Education. The school teaches children from the age of 6 months through to 16 years.

The school is located approximately 2 miles north of Central Milton Keynes.

History[edit]

The school opened in Newport Pagnell in 1970 before moving in 1987 to its current purpose built site in Stantonbury in the north of Milton Keynes.[2] In 2010 current and former pupils produced an exhibition chronicling the history of the school[3] and the former Knoll School (1892-1974).[4] The Knoll School buildings at Aspley Guise were home to the Bury Lawn senior school between 1977-1987. Bury Lawn was renamed the Webber Independent School in September 2011 in honour of the urban designer and 'father of the city' of Milton Keynes, Melvin M. Webber.[5]

The school previously had a sixth-form, but closed this in 2019.[6]
