Reception Admissions - September 2023

Our admissions into Reception are dealt with by the local authority, Hertfordshire County Council (HCC). Parents should expect to receive a booklet sent to their home address prior to children entering Reception. Hertfordshire County Council produces an admissions prospectus each year, which gives information about how parents can apply for a place in the school of their choice.  Expressing a preference does not, in itself, guarantee a place at this school.  Parents are encouraged to apply on-line; all is explained in the information sent out to parents.  HCC will then notify parents about the school place as soon as all the applications have been considered.


To apply on line go to:


Parents are very welcome to view the school prior to application by making an appointment via the school office.


The 30 Reception places available each school year are offered in accordance with Hertfordshire County Council admissions criteria for primary schools, details of which can be obtained from the school office. 


What if I am not successful in the Admission process?

If you are not successful in your Admission application we encourage all parents to register on the ' Continuing Interest' list via the Admissions website or by calling 0300 123 4043.  If there are any In-year vacancies the spaces will be allocated from the children on the list following the same admission criteria using in the initial applications.
