Hatfield Community Free School, in partnership with the University of Hertfordshire, is hosting an event to give locals the opportunity to help shape its future and develop the role that it plays within the community.

Unique and valued part of community

The Free School is one of the first Government funded Free Schools to open and was formed by a parent/community group who had the desire to open a primary school for children in the centre of Hatfield – with the aim of becoming a unique and valued part of the local community.

Bring together

The event will further explore this integral aspect of school life and bring together families and communities who have an interest in the School.  Two sessions will take place on Tuesday 11 February 2014 at 9am – 11am and 6pm – 8pm at Hatfield Community Free School, Briars Lane, Hatfield, AL10 8ES. For more information, please contact Susan Poole, Vice-Chair of Governors on 01707 267400 or email charette@hatfieldcommunityfreeschool.org.uk.

Continue to grow and specialise

The Hatfield community Free School has 60 places each year and will continue to grow until it is full in September 2018 with 420 children from 4 – 11 years. By working with the University and local secondary schools, it aims to become a specialist in science and technology.
