Abel Smith School

Primary East Hertfordshire District



Abel Smith is a very popular and heavily oversubscribed one form entry primary school and pre-scool in the centre of the vibrant market town of Hertford. We are able to support families and children wider than our 240 places will allow through our on-site Churchfield’s children’s centre, which extends our ethos into the wider community. Compared to the national average, the proportion of free school meals, special needs and English as an additional language is low. Behaviour across the school is exemplary because Abel Smith is a positive environment where we promote the values, which we believe to be essential to lead a happy and useful life alongside others. Pupils have a positive attitude towards each other and are consistently polite and respectful to adults. We were judged outstanding by Ofsted in November 2013 and continues to provide excellent learning opportunities for young children.
