Our School

Dear Parents and Carers,

I am pleased to welcome you to our school website.

Almond Hill is a community school, which opened in 1957. Our school is situated close to Stevenage Old Town in a very pleasant environment. It is a mixed ability school of approximately 300 children aged 7 –11. 

Our school staff work very closely together to provide a happy, safe, stimulating and healthy environment in which your child will learn, be respected and valued.  High standards of educational achievement are promoted and attained. Effort and hard work are rewarded, achievements are celebrated and individual needs supported.

We aim to provide an excellent education for all pupils working in partnership with our feeder schools to provide continuity in learning and pastoral care and in partnership with parents and carers to help them support their child's education as a centre of excellence for transition.  We 'Aim High' in everything we do to achieve our very best and develop our skills and talents and be proud of our achievements.  We aim to have a 'growth mindset' and learn from mistakes.  We may not be able to do something 'yet', but we will if we keep trying.  We recognise we are all individuals and respect our uniqueness.  We expect to treat others in the way we wish to be treated ourselves, always showing respect and good manners and a high standard of behaviour. 

We are a school who celebrates our successes, but also moves forward by evaluating our work. To achieve our aims, we believe it is essential that a partnership exists between home and school.  As a parent you have a vital role to play in all aspects of your child’s education.  We encourage close links with parents to ensure you are well informed about your child’s progress in both their educational achievement and personal and social development and so you are aware of school policy and practice. 

We want you and your child to feel valued members of our school community. We look forward to a close association with you and your child.  Should you have any queries regarding our school please feel free to contact me.
