Cherry Tree School opened in April 1975 and is situated at the top of Berry Avenue, North Watford. We are gradually expanding to a two-form entry school and currently have two classes per year group up to Year 5. By September 2017 we will be fully two-form entry.
Our school consists of a main building with classrooms for Years 1, 2 and 3; another building for Reception and Years 4, 5 and 6; and a separate Nursery classroom. The school has a large hall, which is used for PE, assemblies, concerts etc; a well-stocked library; a dining area; and a school kitchen where meals are cooked on the premises. We are ‘wheelchair friendly’ and have a purpose built, fully equipped medical room.
We have three play areas with playground apparatus, a multi-use games area and extensive playing fields. There is a Wildlife Garden consisting of different natural habitats including a pond which is full of frogs and newts. The school has access to a beautiful area of ancient woodland called Harebreaks Wood, which is ideal for environmental studies.
There are three entrances to our school. The main entrance is in Berry Avenue and this is accessible all day. We also have pedestrian entrances in Foxhill and from the Bill Everett field, however, these entrances are only unlocked at the beginning and end of the school day. We ask parents/carers not to drive into school grounds during the school day and to park thoughtfully and be respectful of our local residents, other drivers and pedestrians
