Schools in Hemel Hempstead

Hemel Hempstead, a picturesque town in Hertfordshire, England, has a rich heritage dating back to ancient times. It began as an Anglo-Saxon settlement, flourishing in grain production. By the Tudor period, it was a market town, and later, during the Industrial Revolution, it became a hub for paper production. After World War II, the town was transformed into a new town by the British government, designed to accommodate residents displaced by bombings in London. The new town was built alongside the historical Old Town, which retains its charm and elegance. Today, Hemel Hempstead is a vibrant and modern urban area, offering leisure facilities and a variety of green spaces in the Chilterns Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The town's economy has expanded due to its excellent location for trade, being 24 miles northwest of London and with easy access to London Luton Airport. Hemel Hempstead has seen growth with the establishment of industries and supports a dynamic and diverse population. The new town design has resulted in a well-balanced urban area surrounded by natural beauty.
