Opened in 1967 under the trusteeship of the Diocese of Westminster, John F Kennedy Catholic School (JFK) has established itself as a very successful school, serving the Catholic communities of Dacorum as well as those in neighbouring counties. It was one of the first schools to achieve specialist ‘technology’ status in 1998 and subsequently acquired a second specialism in ‘languages’.
At the heart of the school’s endeavours is our very understanding of the word ‘education’ – its Latin derivation meaning ‘to draw out’. It is our task to draw out the potential in each person to the full. This means maximising the academic achievements as well as the personal and spiritual development of all in our community.
