News headlines

Across the news section of the site we'll attempt to keep you up-to-date with what we've been up to at school - and you'll find more school news on our class pages and in our termly newsletters  


Our latest news:

  • This year's Science Week was packed with workshops, challenges and visits, including brilliant sessions with Falconry UK and a fantatic Science Fair that was attended by over 200 children, parents and carers.

  • Year 5/6 organised a brilliant Harry Potter Day, linked to their English topic, which saw them making brooms, wands, potions and lots of Hogwarts-themed cakes.  
  • We've all been doing loads of fundraising this year, including our Christmas Fayre, non-uniform days, and regular discos, all of which enabled School Council to buy a new Trim Trail for the school field.

Sports news

We love getting involved every sporting opportunity that comes our way, from football to gymnastics to hockey to dance. Here's a sample of what we've been up to recently:   

Leavers videos

At the end of each year, we celebrate the adventure that our Year 6 children have been on as they travel through our school with a special video which we watch in our final assembly of the year. You can watch our last few below:      

Early Years Admissions  

If you're looking for a place in Nursery or Reception, you can find out lots more about our school in our Early Years Prospectus.

We're always keen to show potential new applicants around - just get in touch with the school office to arrange a tour. 

Once you're ready to apply, head to the admissions page to find out more about the process - we run Nursery admissions ourselves, but from Reception upwards, these need to be made via Herts County Council.
