Welcome to Gaddesden Row JMI School


Welcome to our very special and unique school!


Situated in rural Hertfordshire, we are a small village school at the heart of the community. More than half our pupils travel to us from the nearest town, Hemel Hempstead, whilst others come from the surrounding villages.


Our talented and dedicated staff team works hard to capitalise on our unique environment, offering high quality and varied opportunities; we also frequently work in partnership with neighbouring small village schools on joint learning ventures. Our children benefit from small class sizes in all year groups, which enables us to tailor our teaching and learning to the individual needs of every child, so we are able to nurture and support all children to reach their potential in their academic, creative, personal, physical, moral and spiritual development. We are very proud of all our children; the school's most recent  'good' Ofsted  highlighted our 'courteous, friendly and considerate' pupils.


We pride ourselves in having  the very highest expectations of all stakeholders and we believe that through working together to further raise standards in every area, we will ensure all pupils will become life-long learners, with developing emotional intelligence and resilience, which will prepare them for exciting and rewarding lives ahead of them .


Parental partnerships are vitally important to us in order for children to find school a positive and rewarding experience and we value your contributions and commitment to your child's school experience and learning. There is lots of information available on our website, paper copies of any document can be provided on request. If you would like to visit our school, or if there is anything we can do to help and support you with your child’s learning and school life, please do not hesitate to contact us.


Best Wishes, Mr Merriman.
