George Street Primary School
Where Learning Comes Alive
George Street is a one-form entry community primary school for children between the ages of 3 and 11 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 morning nursery. The school’s admission number is 30 and all classes are of mixed ability. We are extremely fortunate to have spacious classrooms, lovely grounds and a number of facilities at George Street which are fully open for community access.
George Street is an ambitious and forward looking school which aims to make a real difference to all the children who come here. We encourage success, build aspirations and believe every child has something to offer, with the capability of rising to the many different challenges life will present them. We want our children to be curious and caring about the world around them, inspired to learn, courteous and tolerant in their relationships with each other and with adults. We aim to provide a stimulating and caring learning environment which is rich in opportunity and enables all of our children to develop the skills, confidence and motivation to become lifelong learners.
We offer a wide range of extended services to children and their families including an after-school club for child care, as well as a varied menu of activities which enhance achievement and broaden interests. We enjoy strong and positive relationships with a wide range of professionals, outside agencies and a number of organisations, including our extended schools’ co-ordinator, local primary and secondary schools and the Galley Hill and the Heath Lane Children’s Centres. This means we can offer the best possible range of services to our children and their families.
