About the school

Preston School is a junior mixed infant voluntary controlled (VC) primary school accommodating children aged 4 to 11. We are situated in the pretty North Hertfordshire village of Preston, approximately 3 miles south of the market town of Hitchin. Our religious character was founded by the Church of England and we have strong ties with St. Martin’s Church in Preston.
