Woolenwick is an exciting, innovative and inclusive place in which to work and learn. We value every individual.

At Woolenwick Infant and Nursery School we provide an environment represented by our motto: Learning, Growing, Achieving Together

About Our School

This underpins the success in everything we do. We believe education is a partnership between home and school and involve parents and carers in all aspects of school life.

Choosing the right school for your child is an important decision. We understand you want your child to receive the best possible start to their education within a safe and secure environment, giving your child a firm foundation to the start of their learning journey. At Woolenwick new skills are learnt, minds opened, imaginations sparked, discoveries made, potential nurtured and challenges are faced confidently. We provide everyday real experiences that inspire children’s thinking, making learning memorable.

Your child’s happiness is of extreme importance to us. We know that children learn best when they feel happy and secure and because of this we place great emphasis on developing your child's self-confidence and self-esteem.

We believe that education is about developing each child’s potential through an enjoyable enquiry based learning approach which builds on their natural curiosity and interests. Throughout their learning journey, your child will grow into a confident, happy, independent child able to communicate effectively, achieve successfully and respect the diverse communities that make up our world.

In an ever changing world, we believe in developing young children as creative learners, giving them the appropriate skills, but most importantly giving them the enthusiasm and confidence in order that they can develop a love for learning that lasts, giving them the desire to pursue learning for the rest of their lives.

As an ECO accredited school your child will develop a range of skills and knowledge that will enable them to recognise the contribution and responsibility they have to developing a sustainable world.

We believe that learning doesn’t just happen inside a school. That is why our attractive school grounds provide as many exciting and stimulating learning opportunities as our classrooms do!
Our outdoor learning resource includes a Nature Trail, spinney, meadow, bog garden, stile and kitchen garden. The spinney enables Forest School activities to take place. Through first hand experiences of the environment children develop their knowledge and understanding of the natural world.

Your child is encouraged to give their best and to develop their own interests and talents. Whether learning through play, through our exciting programme of enrichment or through the creative curriculum, your child will be guided every step of their learning journey by our dedicated and experienced team.

Come and visit our happy and vibrant school…and see for yourself what we can offer your child.

If you would like your child to attend our school, please see full details of our admission arrangements below.


Parents who may be considering applying for a place at this school should contact the school office and arrange to meet the Headteacher, who will show parents around the school, give information and answer any questions that arise.

Hertfordshire County Council (HCC) contact parents directly during the school year in which a child becomes three, enclosing an information booklet.  Parents apply on line though Herts Direct.  Places are allocated by the school in accordance with HCC policy and criteria.  Children are allocated part-time places to start in the Nursery in September.


In the school year in which your child becomes 4, HCC repeat the process, asking you to give a preference for an Infant School.  Your child will enter a Reception class in September.  Places are allocated by HCC.
