We’ve made it! The end of another year; the end of a very successful year for so many reasons. To try and list all the highlights here would be impossible and would result in a blog which would probably eclipse ‘War and Peace’ for length. Hopefully, however, if you are a regular visitor to my Friday afternoon ‘ramblings’ you will have read for yourself just what we have got up to and just how incredible our pupils have been. Despite it being the last week of term, we still had plenty to occupy us this week. Monday started with a long but productive review meeting for the Leadership Team with one of Hertfordshire’s Advisers. It was a chance to look at the work we have done over the course of the year and also a preliminary look at our results for this year. It was a rea...

As our long awaited summer break is in sight and the thoughts of possible long car journeys loom. With the constant fear of the dreaded questions of "are we nearly there yet?" or "How long is it now?"...  A few Year 6 pupils and I trialled some "on-trend", free Ipad maths games which we thought you might like to enjoy over the 6 week break. Rain or no rain...   Coolmaths age 9+ multiple maths game compilations.

Welcome to my penultimate blog of 2014/2015; can you believe we have only four and a half teaching days left! Monday started with an international twist – no surprise for Whitehill – as Miss Hudemann and her German club presented a short sketch in assembly about the German language’s fascination for long words. If I remember correctly, the following was the word being used at the end of the sketch: Übertraditionellschwarzwälderkirschenhochwürzigemmentalerkäsetorte Invited by the Langewörtererhaltungsundverlängerungsgesellschaft. I suppose I should offer a prize for anyone who can tweet me the translation of these words. Of course, members of the German club can’t enter… sorry! On Monday afternoon our Year 6s performed Aladdin again, to an audience of parents, gran...

'I spent a delightful day at Whitehill School in November 2014, doing grammar with the children.
They were a joy to teach - very focussed and keen to answer questions - and it was clear that their teachers encourage a real interest in language, something that's often sadly lacking in primary children I meet.  It was clear from everything about the school (the corridor and classroom displays, the play areas, the clubs going on at lunchtime, the smooth-running administration and, above all, the teachers' cheerfulness and enthusiasm) that Whitehill is a really happy school, providing the sort of 'broad and balanced curriculum' that's exciting for everyone involved and turns children into committed lifelong learners.  It's always splendid to find such schools in the current educational climate, where there's immense external pressure to concentrate on a narrow tests-and-targets agenda, at the expense of other important (but probably immeasurable) aspects of primary education.  I'm sure that the Whitehill children I met will do well in national tests, but they're also lucky enough to be spending their childhood in a vibrant educational environment which, in the long run, will enrich their lives and further their careers much more than test scores.’

Welcome To Our Website

Welcome to the Whitehill Junior School website. I hope that our site will not only give you a flavour of the ethos and expectations of our school, but will also highlight many of the amazing opportunities that the pupils at Whitehill will be offered in their four years with us.

These are very exciting times for everyone associated with Whitehill as we look to build upon its many previous successes. The school has a reputation for developing its pupils as ‘learners’ through the extensive range of activities  they experience in the classroom  coupled with our extra-curricular enrichment  programme. Education is all about the process rather than an end product and at Whitehill we aim to nourish and maintain that natural drive and curiosity whilst striving to help them achieve their true potential.

A successful working partnership between home and school is essential in order to support your child in their education. To this end, communication is a key factor in ensuring  your child has a successful journey. As well as this website, parents are able to receive latest updates via our Twitter feed and also regular newsletters. This, however, cannot replace the face to face contact and dialogue that is actively encouraged between pupils, staff and parents.

If you would like to visit the school we are all very proud of, and see our community in action, one of our pupil ambassadors would be delighted to give you a guided tour. Please approach the school office for further details.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to get in touch. In the meantime, I look forward to welcoming you to our school in the near future.

Since we cannot know what is needed in the future we cannot teach it in advance. Schools need to turn out children who love learning so much they can learn whatever needs to be learnt.
