About Our School
De Havilland is situated on the southern edge of Hatfield in close proximity to Hatfield Park and the Hatfield Campus of the University of Hertfordshire.
We are a 2-form entry school with our own Nursery. We have approximately 482 pupils on roll, and a ‘bulge class’ in Year 5 and Reception, meaning we have 90 children spread over 3 classes within these year groups. We also have a Children’s Centre and private pre-school on site.
The school building itself contains well proportioned, self-contained classrooms all equipped with interactive whiteboards and a good level of learning resources. The school has a Nurture base, music studio; a purpose built children’s kitchen, 2 halls, library and double-decker bus reading room, and mobile I.T. facilities, including iPads.
The school is set in generous grounds. Ongoing developments are improving its use to support learning, social and physical development and sporting achievement. Current highlights include our self-contained Early Years outdoor play area, adventure outdoor play equipment installations, a wildlife environmental area, a dedicated woodland area and a sport arena.
The teaching staff includes a Headteacher, Deputy Headteacher, 2 Assistant Headteachers and full time teachers supported by Learning Practitioners. The school employs a specialist music teacher, sports coach and a Nurture Team.
