Where Lewisham and Lambeth Walk
With Croydon and Southwark

Greets with Bromley on Parade,
Upon this green hill not so far

From Sydenham, Joseph
Paxton's Palace was remade.

His style and his spirit
Can be seen within his park

In the landscape, lakes, foundations;
In the branches, roots and bark;

And at this quiet corner
After sun-set in the dark.

...by John Greatrex

Crystal Palace Park was the site of South London's Crystal Palace 1854 - 1936

Rebuilt on Sydenham Hill by Sir Joseph Paxton in the park he designed.

Paxton Primary School

is a Lambeth Primary School for boys and girls aged 3 to 11. Because it is a small school, we are able to know each child well and believe this enhances his/her happiness and educational achievement. We enjoy being part of a community where people from many different cultures live side by side and we have developed links with local organisations.
