On behalf of the children, staff and governors of George Street Primary School, I would like to warmly welcome you to our school.
We believe that children make the greatest progress when they become fully engaged with their learning and therefore our school vision is ‘Where Learning Comes Alive’; ideally every school day should be fun, imaginative and exciting with a curriculum designed to give all of our children the best start to their lifetime of learning. We aim for our pupils to become independent, confident children who believe in their potential.
George Street is a one-form entry community primary school for children between the ages of three and eleven years, situated in the heart of Hemel Hempstead Old Town. It opened officially in November 1855 and is the oldest school in Hemel Hempstead. The school consists of seven classes and a nursery. The school’s admission number is thirty per year group, with each class being mixed ability. We are extremely fortunate to have spacious classrooms, hall and grounds and these facilities can also be hired for community access.
We have a Breakfast Club from 8.00 a.m. and after school provision until 6.00 p.m., to enable working families to access high quality wrap around care. In addition there is a range of after-school clubs which offer a varied menu of activities which enhance achievement and broaden interests. We enjoy strong and positive relationships with a range of professionals, outside agencies and a number of organisations. These include local primary and secondary schools, Gade Schools Family Support and the Children’s Centre. This means we can offer the best possible range of services to our children and their families.
Friends of George Street, ‘F.O.G.S.S.’ is our PTA, which works hard to host a range of social and fund raising activities for children throughout the year.
If you are considering enrolling your child at George Street, please do make an appointment and I would be delighted to show you around. Should you ever wish to discuss any aspect of the school with me, please do not hesitate to get in touch.
Mrs Heather Freeman
