Happy learners. Aiming high.




Nursery and School applications are completed online through the Hertfordshire Admissions process.  Parents of children about to enter into Nursery or Reception will be sent information from Hertfordshire County Council on the admissions process. This information will give details on how and when you must apply. For both intakes of children we welcome Parents to visit and look around the school.

If you move into an area when your child is older or if you want a place for any other reason, you will need to contact the local education authority who manage all in year admissions.

All children joining Nursery or Reception will be admitted into school in September. There is an induction process which is slightly different for each year group but it includes meeting their class teacher and spending time in their new class with their peers.



Do you have a younger child who was born between 1st September 2013 and 31st August 2014?

Information is being sent direct to parents regarding choosing Reception places. Please contact Children, Schools and Families on 0300 123 4043 if you do not receive this, or visit

The on-line application process opens on Monday 6th November 2017 and closes on 15th January 2018.

DO NOT miss this deadline as you may not be allocated your first choice school.
