Headteacher's Welcome

Sam Orsborne, Headteacher

I am proud to welcome you to The Astley Cooper School, an 11-18 secondary school on the outskirts of Hemel Hempstead in Hertfordshire. Our vision is to ensure that when students leave, they have become successful, well rounded and confident individuals prepared to succeed in the modern world.

We are a good school, one that is inclusive and ambitious for all our students.  Our students are friendly and respectful, and our staff are hard-working and committed to providing the best opportunities for all students.

We encourage personal growth, academic excellence and character development.  We embrace diversity and support one another to create an inclusive environment that builds resilience and empowers every individual to reach their full potential to become responsible and respectful members of society.

The Astley Cooper School is on a successful journey and we are entering an exciting period in the school’s history.  We are over-subscribed and have a state-of-the-art new building which you can find more about here.  We look forward to welcoming you on this journey with us.
