What do we do?

Our goal is to empower Shepherd Primary School in supporting and challenging its pupils to achieve in all aspects of life, by providing an inspirational learning experience, in a stimulating environment. We aim to achieve this through working in partnership with our Head Teacher, our Herts for Learning partners, and the entire school team.
