The Hertfordshire & Essex High School and Science College

The Hertfordshire & Essex High School is a vibrant and happy school providing an outstanding education for girls aged 11 to 18 and for boys in the Sixth Form.  The school’s innovative and dynamic approach responds to the demands of a rapidly changing world 

and our nurturing environment encourages students to grow into independent and creative learners and thinkers.   

With the six school values of compassion and creativity, initiative and independence, resilience and respect in mind, our students are given the opportunities and challenges that capture their interests and develop their thinking inside and outside the classroom.  Our aim is to help every student flourish and to fulfil their highest potential, recognising their individual and unique talents both academically and beyond.  We are highly aspirational for all our students; they leave Herts & Essex as confident, well-rounded young women and men, ready and keen to take their place in society sure in the self-belief that they can achieve anything.

The Hertfordshire & Essex High School is part of the Herts & Essex Multi-Academy Trust (HEMAT).
