Prospective parents are encouraged to visit the school during the day to see the children happily taking part in a range of everyday activities. An appointment can be made with the office staff to meet the Head Teacher and to be shown round the school or Nursery.
Under the current arrangements the LEA requires parents to make a new application for admission to the main school’s Reception Class even if the child already has a place in the Nursery.
For admission to the Reception Class parents automatically receive an application leaflet from the Admissions Department at County Hall approximately one year before the expected year of admission. Parents are encouraged to apply on-line but can request an application form from the Admissions Department at Hertfordshire County Council. The Admissions Department at County Hall process the applications and inform parents of their allocated school on-line and by post.
In the Reception Class, children are admitted in September in the school year in which they have their fifth birthday.
For admission to the current Nursery class, parents will need to apply directly to the school office. Please see below for the Nursery admissions timeline, application form and admissions policy.
Nursery children are admitted to the Nursery in one intake.
