Acting Headteacher's Welcome


David A. Allman, Acting Headteacher

I am immensely proud to be the headteacher of a school that has provided an education to young people in Hoddesdon since John Warner built a school for children of all classes and religious beliefs in 1841.

Our school today seeks to ignite a lifelong passion for learning with a curriculum that is ambitious, varied and relevant. Through meaningful experiences both in and outside the classroom we discover and develop the potential of all our pupils to help them realise the attitudes and attributes that will help them flourish in an ever-changing world.

We are very proud of the significant difference we make to the lives of the young people who study here and take delight in seeing them develop into confident young adults who are well-equipped to face their futures with excitement and determination.

I hope this website gives you a sense of the school’s ethos and values but would encourage you to visit us to see for yourself the vibrancy and engagement we experience every day.
