Headmaster's welcome

It is my privilege to welcome you to Parmiter’s school; a school highly rated by the Good School’s Guide as

"Purposeful, friendly…

with an inclusive feel and a sense of both history and progressiveness."

Parmiter’s is an exceptional school with a rich tradition of providing outstanding academic success and a wealth of opportunities for all our students. 

Founded in 1681, we are proud of our motto and vision ~

"Nemo sibi nascitur"

(no one is born unto themselves alone)

Our values of community, aspiration and opportunity
enable every individual to grow and flourish. 

We aim to develop confident, articulate and caring young adults fully prepared to face the challenges of the twenty-first century.

As Headmaster, I lead a team of expert, dedicated and reliable staff.  We all share the same passion for educational excellence in every area of our school.  Such is the reputation of Parmiter’s teaching that we are a leading partner in the Watford Partnership for Teacher Training.

As an academy, in addition to government funding, we are fortunate to receive financial support from the Parmiter’s Foundation which owns the school site and continues to invest substantially in its development.  The strong partnership between our aspirational parents and carers, Governing Body, Old Parmiterians, as well as our diverse local community, means there are no barriers to prevent every student from doing their very best.

The true hallmark of Parmiter’s is the high quality of the relationships between adults and students right across the school.  I believe that is evident from the moment you walk through our doors.  I strongly encourage you to make a visit and see for yourself and look forward to welcoming you to our school.
