Welcome from the Headteacher

Pirton School, a small school with a huge heart!

Welcome to the Pirton School website and whether you are visiting it today as a current parent, pupil or prospective parent, we hope it gives you a flavour of what we are about!

Pirton School is a village school, in the village of Pirton on the outskirts of Hitchin. Our children come from Pirton itself and further afield and from both Hertfordshire and Bedfordshire.  We currently have 150 children in our school in 5 classes.
Our classes are as follows:
Wrens (28 Reception children)
Robins (22 Year One/7 Year Two children)
Swifts (13 Year Two/18 Year Three children)
Kestrels (8 Year Three/21 Year Four children)
Owls (21 Year Five/12 Year Six children) 
Our classes are all full with the exception of Reception where we have 2 spaces and Robins where we have one space and Kestrels where we have one space. If you are interested in your child starting at Pirton, please contact us to arrange a visit.
I have been the Headteacher of Pirton School since September 2022 and it is a privilege to lead a school with such lively and enthusiastic children. A part of my vision for Pirton School is for it to be the heart of the local community and this is one of the many ways that I intend to develop the school.
I fundamentally believe that to be successful, a child needs to be happy and secure in their school environment. As a school, we are committed to providing a positive, safe and stimulating environment for children to learn, where all are valued. We intend that all children should enjoy their learning, achieve their potential and become independent and lifelong learners.
On our website, you will find further information about the range of high quality extra-curricular activities such as clubs we offer, alongside other opportunities and experiences such as educational visits. These enhance and further develop our wider curriculum and are part of what makes Pirton such a special place to attend. 
We value our partnership with parents and carers and we welcome your involvement in school life. Each term there will be opportunities to come into school in a variety of ways and I have an open door policy for parents and encourage you to come in to see me and to share any feedback with me. 
If you are reading this as a prospective parent, I look forward to getting to know you and your child. If your child already attends Pirton School, I hope that this website provides a further insight into our “small school with a huge heart”.
Kind regards, 

Jenn Magdeburg (Mrs)
