Headteacher’s Welcome

Great oaks from little acorns grow; from oceans and seas, rivers and small streams flow. Every journey begins with a first step.

We like to think of our school as Hertfordshire’s best kept secret! Hexton is a small school, with just two classes. It is set in the idyllic countryside the village of Hexton, between Hitchin and Luton. Our children come from the village itself and from both Hertfordshire and Bedfordshire.

At Hexton, there is a real family feel, where children feel safe and loved. We are a nurturing school with a hardworking staff and supportive governing body. Our school values – the Hex 6Rs – are central to everything we do. We offer a range of exciting experiences such as outdoor learning, cookery, yoga and mindfulness to ensure our children have a rich and diverse curriculum offer.

I have been the headteacher of Hexton school since September 2022. I believe that children should enjoy their learning, feel excited, motivated and challenged by the work set for them, and leave the school ready for their next stage of learning. I see parents and carers as partners in their child’s education – their very first educators, in fact. We provide many opportunities in the school year for children and their families to visit the school, such as welcome evening, Christmas performances, and events organised by our wonderful HPA (Hexton Parents’ Association).

This website aims to give you a taster of Hexton School as well as providing regularly updated information for parents/carers, pupils and the wider community.  I hope that you enjoy your visit to our website, and that you find any information you need.

Please feel free to contact the staff in Hexton School office directly with any other queries. Visits to the school are warmly welcomed – please call or email the office and I look forward to meeting you very soon!
