A nurturing environment for 4 to 11-year-olds

We’re a small primary school in a spectacular and unique setting on the Herts and Beds border

Hexton JMI School is 175 Years Old

To celebrate Caroline de Lautour, the founder of Hexton School, we are looking for ex-pupils and their families to contact the school and share their memories with us.
Please contact the school office at: admin@hexton.herts.sch.uk and share what you remember about the school.

Our Setting

We’re nestled in the beautiful village of Hexton, Hertfordshire – a ten-minute drive from Hitchin and five from Barton-le-Clay.

We’ve got our own playing fields and school garden.

Barton Hills Nature Reserve is on our doorstep and greenery surrounds us in every direction. An added bonus is we have our own car park, making drop-off simple.

School Ethos

Founded in 1846, Hexton JMI takes the best of the past and blends it with the modern world. We’re big on traditional values – promoting things like respect and resilience – and we fuse this with innovation, creating the perfect mix for today’s pupil.

Because of our small size, we get to know every child as an individual, in a way that other schools simply cannot – seeing to it that each pupil reaches their full potential.

Read akarmalife’s views on the innovation and ethos at our school as well as our vision of being active, inclusive and promoting social and emotional wellbeing.

We welcome children from Herts, Beds and beyond. Pop in or contact us today.
