Welcome to the Academy
The Adeyfield Academy is a fully inclusive 11-18 mixed academy, set in the heart of the Adeyfield community of Hemel Hempstead.
We are a proud member of the ATLAS Multi Academy Trust, serving students across three schools in Hertfordshire including St Albans Girls' School and Beech Hyde Primary School. This new and exciting partnership has helped foster a learning environment which is focussed on our shared goals of Learning Without Limits.
The popularity of our school is evident by our growing numbers in Year 7 and 8, alongside the rich curriculum that we have tailored to the needs of our young people. The Adeyfield Academy has a culturally diverse intake, and we pride ourselves on our ability to support, nurture and challenge our students throughout their academic journey with us.
The Adeyfield Academy has a reputation for having excellent pastoral support with a caring and dedicated staff led by Ms Dawn Mason and her Leadership Team. Wherever possible, student groups are kept small to achieve the best outcomes, alongside appropriate support and learning pathways which are developed for the individual needs of each student. For these reasons, and because of our dedicated Special Educational Needs and Disabilities department, families of children with SEND needs are attracted to the school. Visitors to the school often comment on the friendly atmosphere that is promoted between staff and students at The Adeyfield Academy.
"the magic of the school is that you feel a sense of togetherness as you wander around. There is something in the walls here which you can't really explain"

At The Adeyfield Academy all students have equal access to the resources to help them to achieve their full potential and we work closely with parents and carers to achieve this aim. The Adeyfield Academy is a vibrant, inclusive school where students are encouraged to learn and achieve irrespective of gender, ethnicity, class, special educational needs, beliefs or any other personal characteristics.
Communication between home and the school is extremely important to us and we value regular contact with parents and carers at all times. Students are expected to achieve high standards of work and behaviour in a friendly but disciplined learning environment. We aim to provide students with the skills and abilities to help them develop into independent, productive and resourceful young people.
If you require any further information, or if you would like a personal interview and/or a visit to the school during a normal working day, we would be more than happy to organise this. Please contact our reception on 01442 406020.
