Record Breakers Once More!
Friday 8th July was the sporting event of the year- the 2016 Borehamwood Consortium Athletics Tournament.
The pressure was on for our squad, finishing fifth in 2014 and 3rd in 2015, but this did not affect their performance. There were some wonderful individual results, culminating in a fabulous team effort, and for the first time in Meryfield history, we came away as... CHAMPIONS! What a fantastic achievement for all involved.

Good luck on 8th July!
Elstree & Borehamwood Town council Performing Arts Festival
On Tuesday 21st June our choir and dance club took part in the performing arts festival as part of Elstree & Borehamwood town councils festival fortnight. The children performed a song and lyrical dance in the first half of the show and a street dance in the second. The 48 children performed beautifully and their behaviour was exceptional. The children had a fantastic morning watching performances from other local schools and celebrating the performing arts in our community, this event has been running for decades in Borehamwood and was established by our chair of governor’s Mr Cooper whilst he was head teacher at Monksmead! Mr Cooper thoroughly enjoyed Tuesday’s performance as did Mrs Cooper, Mrs Alexander, Mrs Bigland and the parents and carers that came to support our super talented children.
