Welcome to Hertford Junior School

Hertford Junior School is a small, community school with grounds  on the edge of the beautiful South Downs. We are federated with the Infant School on Hertford Road and together we are Hertford Schools. Our "We CAN" values: Challenge, Aspire and Nurture are threaded through everything we do to ensure the children in our school are happy, healthy and inquisitive learners who want to do their best and become life-long learners.

You can watch a film about our schools below.  Rachael Durneen is now the Acting Head Teacher, however, the messages in our film, our values and ethos are still the same the same.
