Our school is a busy and stimulating place to learn, where individual talents are nurtured and achievements celebrated. We have high expectations of all children in all aspects of school life. The ethos we aim to create is one full of RESPECT, KINDNESS and AMBITION.

Collaborative working across Alban Wood Primary School and The Orchard Primary School is facilitated by the Executive Headteacher, Paul Sutton. He supports other headteachers in the Trust in utilising the management information system and using the assessment system to its full potential.

Bromet Primary School

Bromet Primary is a primary school for children from age 5 to 11, based in Oxhey, Watford.

PSHE is at the heart of Bromet’s curriculum. We pride ourselves in giving our children the opportunities to grow into young citizens and become lifelong learners. We have developed a culture of collaboration with other schools through subject leadership, school councils and local communities.

The Grange Academy

The Grange Academy is a junior school for children from age 7 to 11, based in Letchworth.

Being part of the Trust allows us to network with the other schools through collaboration and joint school improvement initiatives.   In addition, The Grange Academy is available to support and develop staff across the trust with the teaching and learning of mathematics.

Meryfield Community Primary School

Meryfield Community Primary is a primary school with a nursery for children from age 3 to 11, based in Borehamwood.

At Meryfield we believe in giving children the skills and confidence to open doors of opportunity throughout their life. This is reinforced by working in partnership with other schools within the Trust and ensuring that we are all innovative in our approach to education.

The Orchard  Primary School

The Orchard Primary is a two form entry primary school located on Gammons Lane in North Watford. Orchard is located in a very multicultural area with 39 different languages spoken by the parental community. We have been fully two form entry from September 2018 having gone through expansion.

Orchard’s vision is for every child to leave Orchard physically, creatively and academically fit for life. At Orchard we believe that part of our role as a school is to prepare children for later life. During their time with us they need to develop essential life skills for them to become well-rounded individuals who can reach their personal best. We have introduced six core values, based on the Youth Sports Trust’s ‘My Personal Best’ initiative: respect, resilience, trust, resourcefulness, integrity and reflection.

Collaborative working across Alban Wood Primary School and The Orchard Primary School is facilitated by the Executive Headteacher, Paul Sutton. He supports other headteachers in the Trust in utilising the management information system and using the assessment system to its full potential.

Waterside Academy

Waterside Academy is a small primary academy based in Welwyn Garden City, Hertfordshire.

We are very proud to be a part of the Agora Learning Partnership, which includes a growing number of schools across the county.

Our aim here at Waterside is to ensure that the pupils who attend our school are kept safe and can learn happily, succeeding both academically and socially.  The children at our school are enthusiastic learners and we do our very best to make activities engaging, challenging and fun!

By the time our pupils leave us, aged 11, to attend secondary school, they do so having experienced a broad and balanced curriculum that is laced with both the knowledge and skills they need to be a success in the next step of their education journey. All within our local context here in central Hertfordshire.

This year we have had the privilege of leading a very important project, that will not only benefit the teachers (and therefore pupils) here at Waterside but across the trust as a whole. We have a great many newly or recently qualified teachers here at Waterside and, as such, we have been leading an ongoing training program for all teachers in the early stages of their careers across all nine trust schools. It is vitally important to us that we invest our time, energy and expertise in helping our teachers to fully develop and grow their own knowledge and skills so that those they teach can receive the very best education. We are proud to lead on this important trust-wide initiative.

Wilbury Junior School

Wilbury Junior School is in the heart of Letchworth Garden City. We are a three form entry junior school. We are striving for all children and staff to be in a happy learning community with high academic standards and achievement for all. We pride ourselves that we work in partnership and foster a love of learning. We ensure children are the centre of all the decisions we make whilst also offering them a broad and balanced curriculum.

Wilbury Junior School is leading on ensuring a tight induction process is in place for all members of staff and ensuring this complies with the Trust’s induction policy along with the key requirements for new leadership.
