The Hertfordshire County Council Local Education Authority manages admission to Primary Schools. Please see the guidance for Infant and Junior admissions below.


General Admissions Guidance

The Local Education Authority (LEA) organises admission to Primary Schools. If your child is of preschool age you should receive a County Admissions Booklet in the Autumn term prior to the academic year in which your child starts school, informing you of the County’s Primary Schools Admissions Policy and the procedure for obtaining a place at your preferred school. You can complete the form online or return the paper form, which is in the booklet, expressing your preference. The LEA will later inform you where your child has been offered a place. Should you not be offered your first preference school you have the right to appeal. Details on how to make an appeal will accompany the letter stating which school your child has been offered.

If you would like your child to join our school please arrange to visit the school and talk with the Headteacher. For children starting in September, school tours are normally held during the Autumn Term. Full details about admissions to Primary School can be found on the Herts Direct Website
