We give every child at Mary Exton the opportunity to achieve their full potential in every aspect of learning.

We provide a positive, caring and creative environment, which inspires each child to take on challenges and to be the best that they can be.

We develop aspirational, independent and enthusiastic learners through meaningful learning experiences.

We prepare our children for life by developing a strong understanding of community and the different cultures and faiths that belong to it.

We seek to ensure our children are kind, respectful, polite, honest and good listeners.

Mary Exton's News

Year 4 Perform at the Royal Albert Hall

20 children from the schools choir performed at the Royal Albert Hall on Sunday 13th March. They joined 1700 other children, which included secondary school dancers and an orchestra to put on a one hour performance.

Rufus Frowde – Artistic Director and Conductor said 'I was given great musical opportunities in Hertfordshire as a child - memories that endure. It is such a privilege to be able to create those memories for the next generation, supported by such impressive colleagues and teachers. I’m so glad that you were willing to take on the challenges that I threw your way with this programme - I am eternally grateful.

Girls Football Team Plays Brilliantly

Mary Exton's girls football team played brilliantly this season and are now through to the county finals. This is due to be played as soon as the weather becomes more suitable. The winners of the regionals will then be put forward for the Nationals. 


Children Enjoy a Fabulous Panto

The children at Mary Exton enjoyed a fabulous production of Dick Whittington. There was much fun and hilarity. Thanks goes to the PTA for funding the experience and we look forward to the experience again next year. 

Year 5 and 6 Perform at the O2

Year 5 and 6 performed brilliantly at the O2 arena in January. They performed alongside star performers and over 10, 000 other school choir members. They had a great time and were a credit to Mary Exton.

Business Enterprise

A huge well done to the children in Year 6 who raised a massive £350 from their business enterprise project.  It was great to see their creative ideas, eye catching marketing and excellent sales techniques on the day.  A big thank you to everyone who purchased something from one of the stalls.  The money raised will go towards Year 6's end of year leavers' party.
