School Description

Pupils are happy and feel safe. They trust adults to help them solve any problems that arise. Pupils say that bullying is rare. The quality of education is not good enough. Pupils do not learn the knowledge and skills they need in reading, writing and mathematics. Staff are ambitious for pupils to do their best and achieve well. Leaders’ work to improve the quality of the curriculum and to develop teachers’ skills is beginning to have a positive impact. The behaviour of pupils is improving. At lunchtime the wide range of activities on offer helps pupils play together calmly. However, in some lessons pupils lose focus and find it difficult to sustain concentration because they find work too hard or too easy. Training is helping staff to respond in a constructive way when pupils find managing their own behaviour difficult. Pupils enjoy the wide range of opportunities they are offered, including extracurricular trips and clubs. These include sporting activities and opportunities like eco club, and harmonica and French lessons. Pupils are helped and encouraged to take part in clubs that interest them.

This School Guide heat map has been plotted using official pupil data taken from the last School Census collected by the Department for Education. It is a visualisation of where pupils lived at the time of the annual School Census.

Our heat maps use groups of postcodes, not individual postcodes, and have naturally soft edges. All pupils are included in the mapping (i.e. children with siblings already at the school, high priority pupils and selective and/or religious admissions) but we may have removed statistical ‘outliers’ with more remote postcodes that do not reflect majority admissions.

For some schools, the heat map may be a useful indicator of the catchment area but our heat maps are not the same as catchment area maps. Catchment area maps, published by the school or local authority, are based on geographical admissions criteria and show actual cut-off distances and pre-defined catchment areas for a single admission year.

This information is provided as a guide only. The areas from which pupils are admitted to a school can change from year to year to reflect the number of siblings and pupils admitted under high priority admissions criteria.

3 steps to help parents gather catchment information for a school:

  1. Look at our school catchment area guide for more information on heat maps. They give a useful indicator of the general areas that admit pupils to the school. This visualisation is based on all attending pupils present at the time of the annual School Census.
  2. Use the link to the Local Authority Contact (above) to find catchment area information based on a single admission year. This is very important if you are considering applying to a school.
  3. On each school page, use the link to visit the school website and find information on individual school admissions criteria. Geographical criteria are only applied after pupils have been admitted on higher priority criteria such as Looked After Children, SEN, siblings, etc.

Hertford Junior School Reviews

Average Rating:


“Great school with lots of green space”
"> Fantastic school at the heart of a lovely community. This school has been really supportive to my son who is a summer born child and may have struggled at a larger school. It has loads of green space and the care given by the teachers is non-comparable. It really is a hidden gem.
“Small and green, caring community school”
"> Great sized school with loads of green space and committed, caring staff. The teachers engage the children in fun, creative learning activities and know all their pupils well and genuinely seem to care about them. They have a wonderful home learning system that really engages the children (and parents which always helps!) and promotes who they are/what they enjoy doing and really engages them. My child has lots of good friends that he came up with from the Infant school, and this continuity has been wonderful. They all seem very happy there and are doing well. My son is pretty academic and I have been really impressed with how the school clearly works hard to challenge and engage higher level pupils as well as having a great record for closing the gap between all learners. I'm pleased I sent my son to this local, small, community based school because I feel he has really had an opportunity to excel in his learning and in confidence. They also have an allotment and chickens and great green space.
“great community school”
"> Both my children have attended Hertford Infants and Hertford Juniors and been nurtured and inspired to learn. Although they are located in the city of Brighton the feeling of an old fashioned countryside school is present at both schools due to their location on the edge of the city and start of the Downs. Lovely green spaces and focus on wellbeing and happiness rather than stats and exams. The small classes mean every child is treated as an individual and given the time and space they need to learn. There is a great community in Hollingdean and the diversity of the families prepares children for the real world ahead. Kids are caring and considerate and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Hertford Infants or Juniors to any parents.
