Simon Balle School is a co-educational secondary school and sixth form with academy status located in Hertford, Hertfordshire, England. The school's results for many years have been above the national average. Its name derives from Simon de Balle, one of two deputies (MPs) sent to Parliament to represent the Borough in 1298. He owned Balls Park, which is adjacent to the school's location.  The school converted to academy status on 1st November 2013.
