Raynsford Academy Church of England Acdemy




Raynsford is a Church of England School situated within the village of Henlow.  We enjoy close links with our local church, St Mary's, as well as benefitting from the support and wealth of resources provided by the Diocese of St Albans.

In addition to this we benefit from a variety of other visitors who enhance the unique Christian character of our school.  Visitors include Rev Shaun, St Mary's vicar, Rev Lorna, the minister from Henlow Methodist Church and the Open the Book team. 

We also welcome speakers and visitors from other faiths and provide a wide range of real life experiences for the children to enjoy the cultural diversity of our country.  These include a Bible exhibition, visiting a Synagogue, going on the Faith Tour etc.

Reverend Shaun Speller is a member of the school's governing body and provides theological insight and support to staff, families and pupils.
