Bushey Meads School (also known as "BMS") is a coeducational secondary school and sixth form with academy status, located in Bushey, Hertfordshire, England. The school forms part of the Bushey St James Trust, in partnership with Little Reddings Primary School and Hartsbourne Primary School.[2]

History[edit]

The school was founded in 1957 as Bushey Secondary Modern School. It celebrated its 50th anniversary by taking a major role in the annual Bushey Carnival in 2007, basing some events on the history and successes of the school.

The name Bushey Meads derives from the original surrounding area. The site where the school buildings now stand was once mostly fields ("meads", from Old English mæd) surrounding the then small village of Bushey.

The school has been featured in TV programs including Grange Hill.
