About Our School

Pupils love their school.

Ofsted 2020

Cranbourne is a two form entry primary school set in the Hundred Acre estate about a mile from the centre of Hoddesdon.

Our buildings are spacious and well maintained, with large classrooms, two halls and a library. We have two computing suites each with 32 computers. 

We make full use of our very extensive grounds. We have four playgrounds, fitness trails and climbing areas for all ages, a woodland area, quiet areas, picnic benches, an outdoor classroom, and a field large enough to cater for several football pitches, rounders pitches and a running track depending upon the season. 

We are proud of the welcoming and friendly atmosphere within our school. It is a school where every child really matters and every family is made to feel part of our community.

Our motto is “Broadening Horizons” which drives our curriculum, assemblies, and extra-curricular choices. We want our children to understand they are part of, and the future of, a big wide world.

Above all we aim to give the children a primary school experience that they will never forget.

In January 2024 we joined Danes Educational Trust. This is an exciting step for Cranbourne and we are looking forward to all the enhanced opportunities for staff and children.
