Values, vision and strategy

We share who we are through our motto, mission and vision:

“Esse Quam Videri”          “To be, not seem to be”


At The Hemel Hempstead School we strive, through inspiring teaching, authentic leadership, a strong curriculum and unyielding standards, to help young people to realise the very best versions of themselves, fully prepared to be the leaders and champions of tomorrow.  We offer a curriculum which is academically rigorous and also supports children to evolve, aspire and achieve self-fulfillment.


Forging future leaders who can ‘be, not seem to be’ because they are built on a foundation of Respect, Relationships, Responsibility, Reflection and Resilience and have high aspirations.  Esse Quam Videri.
