We hope you enjoy your visit to our site and
that it provides you with a flavour of our school.
schooling was first established in Digswell in 1816 and was provided
by the National Society, a body set up by the Church of England.
The school was opened on its present site in 1872 and comprised
a single room (now the library), and the headmaster's house (now
offices, staff room, medical and stock rooms).
A further room
was built in 1893 and extended in 1896 (now the classroom for
the Year 1 children). These original buildings lie alongside the
Hertford Road (B1000). As the village of Digswell grew and Welwyn
Garden City spread northwards, it was necessary to extend the
buildings. This was done piecemeal over the years, with the latest
new reception classroom added in summer 2002. Our next objective
is to build a new hall so that we can meet comfortably as a whole
school and extend our educational provision.
The Christian ethos that
pervades the school is important in that we hope
attitudes of respect, love and care rub off onto the
children. The aims of the school reflect this ethos.
