Built and opened in 1877, Laindon Park is the oldest remaining school in the Laindon/Langdon Hills area of Basildon.

The school opened as Laindon Board School and became Laindon Council School when Board schools were abolished under the Education Act 1902. It remained Laindon Council School into the 1930s before another name change to St. Nicholas Lane Council School and later still St. Nicholas Lane County Primary.

It was renamed again in 1957 to Laindon Park County Primary, and remains so today.

A small school had previously existed close by in the St. Nicholas Church annexe. The last schoolmaster, James Hornsby, who also lived above the schoolhouse, taught there for 48 years.

The schools' address is Church Hill though in the past this was sometimes seen in print as Basildon Road (as in the case of the school house; 1911 Census) and Nicholas Lane during the 1930s.
