The Henry Prince School

Our school is The Henry Prince CofE (Controlled) School, which welcomes primary pupils from Ashbourne, Derbyshire and Staffordshire. The latest Ofsted inspection (October 2017) found the school to be good in all areas. Ofsted said

"This school continues to be good."
"Pupils talked enthusiastically about residential trips, playing a musical instrument, taking part in sports activities and learning French."
"The needs of pupils across the school are well catered for in a warm and nurturing environment. This is particularly true for those with special educational needs and/or disabilities, including social, emotional and mental health needs."

The school has small class sizes with outstanding teacher to pupil ratios. It is welcoming and friendly - if any prospective parents would like to look around the school they are very welcome: just contact [email protected], or call 01335 342613, to arrange a visit at a time to suit you.

Henry Prince PTFA (parents, teachers and friends association) have a Facebook page - please join and see what they are doing. At the moment the PTFA are raising money to buy Ipads for use in school. Events planned are listed here on our Village Events page and are open to everyone. If you can't attend an event but would like to make a donation - contact the PTFA Chair, Vickie Green.
