A warm welcome to St Catherine’s Hoddesdon where our children are happy, safe and love learning.
We are the town’s church school, situated in the very heart of Hoddesdon.
Our child-centred, project based curriculum is both creative and fun – taking into account each learner’s individual needs and interests. Our academic outcomes are strong in terms of both attainment and progress.
We are proud of the positive working partnership we have with families and recognise the importance that home life plays in the development of our young people.
In addition to our extensive grounds, St Catherine’s has a state-of-the-art computer suite, an inspiring library, a nature area with outdoor classroom and our very own outdoor swimming pool.
We have a thriving breakfast and after school club to provide care for our pupils from 7.45am to 5.55pm. In addition, a range of sporting and creative arts after school clubs cater for our children’s active pursuits and interests. We benefit from close liaison with our local parish church as well as The Ark Children’s Centre which is located on our site.
Our most recent Ofsted inspection in September 2016, grades St Catherine’s as ‘Good’ in all areas. Noting particularly;
‘This is a fully inclusive school where pupils are valued and taught to value others.’
‘Pupils are confident and they are proud of their school. They value the opportunities they have to take on positions of responsibility such as school councillor and membership of the collective worship team. Pupils who spoke to inspectors could not think of any way the school could be improved.’
