Primary Transition

Welcome to The John Warner School

At The John Warner School we are proud to belong to a school that has provided a first-rate education to young people in Hoddesdon since John Warner built a school for children of all classes and religious beliefs in 1841. We have worked tirelessly to build on this rich history to ignite a lifelong passion for learning, to discover and develop potential, allowing all to flourish in an ever-changing world.

That hasn’t, however, come without its challenges – and we are currently making important changes to ensure that we meet the high standards that we set ourselves.


This section is for students who wish to apply for a place at our school in September of the following academic year.
