Welcome to Parkgate Junior School’s Website!

We are an inspiring learning community.


We hope you will find the information you are looking for, please contact the school if you would like to know more.

Parkgate Junior School is a 2 form entry Junior School in North Watford, Hertfordshire. We are linked to Parkgate Infants School and the majority of children transfer directly from Parkgate Infants in Year 3.

Our School is a happy dynamic community where every child is inspired through discovery and learning, to reach their full potential, in preparation for a successful future.

We aim to be a school where all children are supported to make good progress in all areas of the curriculum with a focus on the core subjects of English, Maths and Science. Teachers work closely with support staff to ensure that all pupils have the opportunity to succeed. We also want our children to be caring and responsible members of the community and achieve this through our PSHCE lessons and work with the local community.

We have a particular emphasis on healthy living and are accredited with ‘healthy school’s status’. We are part of the local ’Schools Sports Partnership’ and have attained the ’Active Mark’ for our emphasis on sports and fitness. A particular strength of ours is the wide variety of sports clubs on offer from Karate to Street Dance, Golf to Basketball!

We have a very active PTA who raise a lot of money for the school each year through a wide variety of fun and exciting events for both pupils and their families.

We hope that you will find the information on our website helpful. If you want to know more about the school or would like to come and visit us, please contact the school office.
