About Us 


William Austin Infant School is a Community school.


Our school is named after the Luton historian and benefactor, William Austin. The Infant School became separated from the Junior Department in 1973.


In December 2018, the school had its most recent Ofsted inspection. We were judged to be a good school and we achieved a very successful and positive report. The inspectors recognised many positive attributes and strengths of the school, saying that we ‘have created a friendly, welcoming and happy school. Pupils behave very well in their classrooms and clearly enjoy coming to school’. They also recognised the good and outstanding teaching at our school that enables all pupils at our school to make strong progress. Ofsted endorsed the exemplary behaviour of our students that we are so proud of.
