 Hertford Infant School is a small, community school in the heart of Hollingdean. We are federated with the Junior School on Lynchet Close and together we are Hertford Schools. Our "We CAN" values: Challenge, Aspire and Nurture are threaded through everything we do to ensure the children in our school are happy, healthy, inquisitive learners who want to do their best and become life-long learners.

You can watch a film about our schools below. Rachael Durneen is now the Acting Head Teacher, however, the messages in our film, our values and ethos are still the same the same.
