Wheatcroft opened fully as a County Primary School in September 1974. The building then contained space for seven classes and admitted approximately thirty children each year. A private nursery was opened on an adjacent part of the school site, and this eventually became a fully funded County nursery class.

Due to the school’s popularity, and to answer the demand for more primary places in the area, the school underwent a major expansion project. Work began in 1996 to convert Wheatcroft to a one and a half-form entry school, allowing it to take forty five children each year. A large extension was built which now houses the nursery and older children.
