Batchwood School: Passion Belief Courage

About the School

We are a happy and small school where all of our students are known and valued as individuals.  We believe every child can succeed in life, if challenged and inspired appropriately.  We therefore set challenging targets to stretch our students to achieve more than they might feel is possible.  A strong focus on an academic curriculum, supported by a range of extra-curricular activities and social activities, helps Batchwood students to develop as individuals with the necessary skills to be responsible and successful in adult life.

Our progress is rapidly improving and staff, students, governors and parents are all committed to the future success of our school.  With new systems firmly embedded in place to monitor progress and reward students, together we are committed to raising standards of achievement for all.

Extended day is available to all students with opportunities to attend a range of enriching activities. All staff are trained in Hertfordshire STEPs which is a county approved behaviour management approach that teaches de-escalation techniques and behaviour management strategies.

This website is intended to give you some important information about the school, and to reflect our vision, ethos and expectations.  However, it cannot replace the day to day life at the school and we recommend that you come and see us in action and speak to our students and staff about our recent changes, and the impact they are having.

For 2021-2022 our head students are:  Brooke Cornwell (Year 11) and Kayson Monk (Year 10)
