Diocese

The school is situated adjacent to the church of St Mary Magdalene,
and is supported by the Diocese of St Albans.

The Vicar holds a Christian service fortnightly in the church for the school as well as playing an active role on the Governing body. We promote the intellectual, spiritual, cultural and moral development of the children through a broad, balanced and differentiated activities which meet the requirements of the National Curriculum and the Diocese.
