Croxley Danes School
In 2014 the school submitted to the Department of Education, at the behest of Hertfordshire County Council, an application to open a new secondary school in Croxley Green. It was an honour to be asked to lead such an undertaking and it is a resounding validation of our sustained excellence and our willingness to collaborate that we were able to rise to the challenge. It will mean that in the future even more young people can experience a school like St Clement Danes.
Croxley Danes School, which opened in September 2017, is an all-ability, co-educational state secondary school serving South West Hertfordshire. Initially opening with 120 Year 7 students, it will eventually provide a high quality education to 1206 students aged 11-18. St Clement Danes is acting as a blueprint for the new school and our former Headteacher, Dr Valentine OBE, a National Leader in Education, has oversight of both St Clement Danes and Croxley Danes as CEO of the Danes Educational Trust. Croxley Danes School is addressing a substantial shortfall in secondary places for 2017 and beyond and is quickly becoming the first-choice school for the surrounding area.
