Holtsmere End Infant and Nursery School


Happy learners. Aiming high.


About Us

Holtsmere End Infant and Nursery School provides an exciting and stimulating learning environment for children between the ages of 3 and 7 years old. Our attractive building opened in 1981 and was built on the same site as Holtsmere End Junior School to educate the growing population and young families of the Woodhall Farm community.

In the last 25 years the indoor and outdoor learning environment has been improved to respond to national educational changes and to provide for developing needs of today's children. Our most recent improvement was in 2006 when the remodelling and extension to the building and grounds created a high quality Foundation Stage Unit for the nursery and reception children.

Our curriculum is stimulating and very appropriate for young children who need to secure firm foundations in learning on which to build their futures. 

Encouraging good behaviour, respect for each other and healthy social skills are central to maintaining and improving the celebrated standards and achievement of the pupils in our school.

Families wanting to join our school community are encouraged to visit and meet us during our working day. Please contact us to arrange a visit.

School Admission Arrangements

Nursery and School applications are completed online through the Hertfordshire Admissions process.  Parents of children about to enter into Nursery or Reception will be sent information from Hertfordshire County Council on the admissions process. This information will give details on how and when you must apply. For both intakes of children we welcome Parents to visit and look around the school.

If you move into an area when your child is older or if you want a place for any other reason, you will need to contact the local education authority who manage all in year admissions.

All children joining Nursery or Reception will be admitted into school in September. There is an induction process which is slightly different for each year group but it includes meeting their class teacher and spending time in their new class with their peers.
