School Tours

Due to the current Government Guidelines we are unable to hold tours of the school. However, our Year 6 Children have made a video tour of the school for you. Please see below.




Please note: Aboyne Lodge School is currently undergoing a major refurbishment, a temporary school has been constructed on our playground, we are still on the same site just in a different building.

The current Reception and Nursery Classes (EYFS) are housed in the Nursery and Lodge room at the front of the school site – this building has already been refurbished and we cannot wait to get back into our main school as the finish is fantastic and has created a wonderful warm learning environment for our Early Years classes.

The school works within the admissions policy of Hertfordshire Education Authority. Hertfordshire’s Admission Department administers the admissions process. There are separate processes for Nursery and Reception and parents need to apply for both stages as they are not linked.

Information about the application process should be sent directly to you from Hertfordshire County Council when your child is the appropriate age. If you live in Hertfordshire you can apply online via the
Herts County Council website.
You can apply for up to four schools in order of preference. If a school receives more applications than they have places available, admission criteria are used and places are allocated to those who best meet the published admission rules.
