Adeyfield School "Learning without Limits"

Secondary Dacorum Borough



Adeyfield School is 11-19 comprehensive school in Hemel Hempstead, Hertfordshire. There are approximately 600 students on roll including 90 in the Sixth Form. Students of all abilities enter the school in Year 7 from over 20 Primary Schools. Our aim is to provide the highest quality education for each individual. This is supported by the three core principles of:  Look smart be polite and work hard.  The school underwent a Section 5 Ofsted Inspection on 28 February 2018 and was graded inadequate and is under the new leadership with the guidance and support of two successful Headteachers.   Adeyfield School has an enthusiastic, energetic and experienced staff. There are many opportunities to become involved in extra-curricular activities including drama productions, musical events, sport and residential visits. The school is a rewarding environment in which to work, with excellent relationships between all its members. Teamwork is at the core of our work and we value the input of all staff equally. We know that we are strongest when we all work together to achieve the best for all our students.  We operate a 25 period two week timetable. A faculty system operates and Heads of Faculty lead the curriculum areas. A year system operates with all students allocated to a form group. In Year 7 and 8 students are taught in half year groups with setting in the core subjects. In Year 9-11 students follow a core of English, Maths, Science, PE, Citizenship, Geography or History with four option choices from a wide range of subjects. Open access to the Sixth Form encourages many students to stay on each year. Programmes of study include AS/A2 and Vocational courses. The KS5 curriculum is expanding as a result of excellent collaborative arrangements with neighbouring schools. Adeyfield continues to go from strength-to-strength and we want all students to achieve their best.
