Education and learning
One of our objectives is to ensure Watford is a good town for business, skills and learning.
The education authority for the district is Hertfordshire County Council. We have provided a range of information on schools and colleges provided via appropriate links to external websites, which we hope you will find useful.
In this section you can also find out about adult education and lifelong learning opportunities in the town, as well as extra-curricular activities for children and young people.
Help with the cost of education - Free school meals
Children of families receiving certain benefits could be entitled to free school meals and other education benefits from Hertfordshire County Council. 16 to 18 year-olds receiving these benefits in their own right are also entitled to free school meals.
