Learning and Growing Together

History of the School

 

Thundridge Church of England Primary School is situated within the village community of Thundridge and adjacent to Wadesmill Village, approximately one mile north of the town of Ware.

 

Thundridge School was founded by Lord Hanbury of the Hanbury Estate. The main building dates back to 1894, and modern additions have recently been added to provide an excellent environment for our pupils. 

 

Originally an elementary school, until the 1930's, children left at the age of fourteen. Since then Thundridge has been a Primary School, offering education to boys and girls up to the age of eleven. 

 

Thundridge is a Voluntary Controlled Church of England day school, which means that we are committed to maintaining a Christian ethos through a daily act of Collective Worship, and links with St Mary's Church, Thundridge. We place great importance upon nurturing excellent attitudes and relationships, within a small, caring and friendly environment. Children are encouraged to understand religious, cultural and ethnic diversity.
