On behalf of pupils, staff and governors, I would like to welcome you to our school website.

We are a three-form entry primary school, with a Nursery, in Watford. At The Grove Academy, we are lucky enough to have generous school grounds that we like to use daily to enrich our pupils’ time at school.

As proud members of Aspire Academies Trust, we regularly have the opportunity collaborate and innovate with our partner schools; Bovingdon Academy, Bedmond Academy, Broadfield Academy, Knutsford Primary Academy and Hammond Academy.

At The Grove Academy, we celebrate a culture of collaboration; working to bring pupils, staff and community together to achieve the best outcomes for our pupils. We are committed to supporting our pupils and aim to be an inclusive school that meets the needs of every pupil.

We have 5 key values that are displayed around the school and are regularly referred to. They are : 






These values are celebrated at every opportunity as we work hard to embed them with both pupils, staff and parents.

We are committed to providing high quality education and experiences for each and every one of our pupils. As we move forward into the next academic year, we aim to empower and excite our pupils as we all navigate a post-pandemic curriculum and life in school together.

Having worked across Aspire Academy Trust schools for over 10 years, 7 of which were at this school, I am delighted to be the Principal of The Grove Academy. I aim to support families and staff and lead the school on its journey to excellence.

I hope that our website is able to answer all of your questions however, please do contact the school office if you have any further queries or would like to arrange a visit.

Mrs Hennigan
