This is a vibrant school set in the middle of the village of Bayford, which is surrounded by beautiful Hertfordshire countryside. Our school can accommodate 105 pupils with 15 in each year group plus a Nursery facility which can accommodate a further 15 children.

We are situated within half a mile of a mainline rail service to the heart of London and there is a range of facilities in the nearby county town of Hertford, including good schooling across the age ranges.

Visits to the school are encouraged straight after the Easter holidays.
