Our School


Raynsford Church of England Academy was founded in 1826 to provide education according to the ‘principles and practices of the Church of England’.

We aim to serve the community by providing an education of the highest quality within the context of Christian belief and practice preserving and developing our religious character in partnership with St Mary's Church and the diocese of St Albans. We encourage an understanding of the meaning and significance of faith and promote Christian values through the experience it offers to all pupils.

We cater for up to 240 children and benefit from classes run by a strong dedicated team of staff who provide a caring environment where all are supported to achieve their best.  As a result of this standards and achievements are above national averages. 

Our primary aim is to provide a happy, secure and inclusive environment where every person has opportunities to discover and develop their unique talents.  We believe the real value for each individual is to feel that they can use their knowledge wisely and contribute their skills to their communities.

The staff and Governors believe that Every Person Matters and strive to develop positive partnerships with families, the community and the Extended Schools to provide the best opportunities for all children to enjoy and achieve throughout their early school years.

 If you would like to visit our school, please contact the office to make an appointment and we will be happy to see you.
