Principal's Welcome

Welcome to The Grove Academy website which has been designed to help keep parents informed and to give newcomers an introduction to our academy.

The Grove Academy is a three-form entry primary school, with a Nursery.  We are very proud of our Academy, where we celebrate a culture of working together and aiming high. We are part of the Aspire Academies Trust, and are active members of the West Herts Teaching Schools Partnership

It is a great privilege for me to have the opportunity to lead a team of talented, professional and dedicated staff who aim to create a primary academy in which every pupil will flourish in a caring, happy environment.  

We have high expectations of our children.  Our ethos is to teach children to take responsibility for their actions, their environment, and most importantly, for their learning.  Children are taught the values that help them develop into confident and caring individuals who will become successful members of society. We are a caring community, whose values are built on mutual trust and respect for all. Teachers harness children’s natural curiosity and desire to learn, making learning stimulating and enjoyable.  We offer support to children whatever their learning needs.

We strongly believe in the importance of developing a supportive partnership between home and school. This is essential if children are to achieve their full potential and to grow as individuals. Working together, we can help your child to develop the skills that they will need in later life. We want all of our children to be happy, confident learners and to aim high!

Our community is warm and vibrant. We provide a caring and secure environment in which children are valued as individuals and where they can develop an appreciation of the cultures and beliefs of others in our school community and beyond.

We are very proud of everything we do here, so If you are thinking of applying for a school place or a staff position, we will be delighted to welcome you to visit. We hope our website will answer many of your questions but should you have further queries, please telephone, email or visit the school - you will be most welcome.
