We operate a single entry admission and all children start school in September. Each year group has 1 class with maximum of 30 children in each class.

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.
