A group of school buildings of various ages.  The older section is located at the front of the school and is a large weatherboard building with a hipped roof.  There is a small enclosed foyer at the entry, and two brick chimneys/fireplaces flank the entry.  A covered breezeway connects this building to a much newer brick classroom building.

The first school was in Duncans Road and is no longer standing.  Prior to the building of Cayleys Road School, the Soldier’s Memorial Hall in Diggers Road was used as a school from 1927-1937.  The Werribee Park Primary School was built in 1937 with additions in 1952.

In 1999 the site at 10 Cayleys Road was purchased by Mambourin Enterprises who operated services commencing in February of that year.  Extensive redevelopment of the site began in December 2008 that was completed in December 2009.  The site now boasts modern and up-to-date facilities that cater for people with varying needs and abilities.
