Dear Visitors

A very warm welcome to our website which I hope will give you a flavour of our school.

The Lea is located in a very quiet area on the north-east edge of Harpenden. We are a one form entry school for boys and girls aged between three and eleven years. The school provides a safe and happy environment in which children can thrive. We offer a broad and balanced curriculum through which each child is given every opportunity to realize their full potential. There is a real sense of community achieved by valuing all involved with our school.

The Lea is committed to giving every child the best possible start to their schooling. Our classes are staffed by a team of inspirational, dedicated and hardworking professionals. Expectations are high and we work hard to ensure every child experiences success and leaves The Lea ready to continue on their learning journey.


I feel very proud to be the Headteacher of such a fantastic school and would enjoy showing you what we have to offer.

Sharon Swinson
