Ofsted school description

Hertswood School is larger than most comprehensive schools. The proportions of students entitled to free school meals and those with learning difficulties and disabilities are above those in most schools, although few have a statement of special educational needs. The proportion of students from minority ethnic groups is just below the national average; they mainly come from East European, Asian and African backgrounds. Few are just starting to learn English. The school occupies a split site. The school is the hub school for the Shenley, Elstree and Borehamwood extended schools consortium. In 2005 the school gained specialist arts college status.
