Bukit Panjang English School (as it was then known) was one of the very few primary schools in the northern part of Singapore back in 1930s. Mrs. Downe (first principal) and her staff had to go round Bukit Panjang Village and district to persuade parents to send their children to school.
It is believed that the Imperial Army occupied the school building during the Japanese occupation. On 12th September 1945, the war ended when the Japanese surrendered to the British but the school did not re-open until January 1948. The Bukit Panjang Government Afternoon School was opened in July 1952.
