When the new academic term starts in September, it will be the first time in 28 consecutive years that a child from a family in Bradwell will not be at the school.
Ellie Hunt has 10 children, all of which have attended Homefield Primary, and youngest, Poppy, is now leaving for high school.
Meanwhile, oldest Jonny, 32, is currently working as a prison officer.
The father, Gareth Hunt, said he never imagined they would reach such a milestone.
He said: “The school is outstanding and it has given the children a great start to their education, it’s a lovely community school with excellent teachers.
“I never imagined that we would have been going to the school for so many years and to have set a milestone like this, one which I cannot imagine will be beaten any time soon.”
But it will not be long until a family member returns to the school though, as daughter Jessie has a child of her own, Alfie, who will be starting at the school in 2019.

Penny Studley has been teaching at the school for 19 years.
She said: “They’re a lovely family and they’ve always been very supportive of anything we’ve done.
“All the recent ones have been girls and they just look so identical.”
