Hatfield Community Free School opened in September of 2012 and is funded directly by the Government. It was built due to an increasing need for primary school places in the Hatfield area.
The site originally housed two previous schools:-
- Briars Lane Infant School which opened 1961. In 1985 it amalgamated with Newtown School (which was closed due to a then surplus of places) and renamed New Briars Primary & Nursery School.
- New Briars Primary & Nursery School closed in 2007 (again due to a surplus of primary school places) and amalgamated with Stream Woods JMI in Woods Avenue, and became Oak View Primary School.
