    Welcome to our school

    Welcome to Tonwell St Mary’s school website....


    We are a small, friendly school situated on the outskirts of Ware and Hertford. We have capacity for up to sixty four children from Nursery to Year 6. 

    'Knowing each child, growing each child, in God's love' summarises our vision for all children. We pride ourselves on our ability to form strong relationships and to provide challenge and support for all of our children on an individual basis. We provide a nurturing environment where children are always encouraged to achieve their best, learn from mistakes and develop an ongoing love of learning. We benefit from extensive outdoor space, a nature area and woodland. We are a ‘Forest School’ with all year groups enjoying outdoor learning every week.

    As a church school, we encourage children to respect and ‘live out’ Christian values in their day to day lives. Children’s behaviour is excellent; they show care and kindness to each other. We work in strong partnership with our church, Holy Trinity in Bengeo, with children attending services every term. Volunteers from the church visit each week to lead worship time for the whole school.

    Our main catchment areas are Tonwell, Hertford and Ware, although we have children who travel from further afield to enjoy the many advantages our school has to offer. We offer wraparound care every day from 7.45am each morning and after school until 5pm. for all children. We offer 30 hour places in our nursery class.

    Please browse our website to find out more information. Visits to the school are warmly welcomed. I would be delighted to show you around.

    Kind regards, Mrs Sarah Bridgman
