Frequently asked questions (FAQs)
  • Can I be sure of getting a place? It is very important that you register your child before the deadline for admissions applications. It is Hertfordshire County Council, not the school, who make the decision about whether a Reception  place is available for your child. They take into account whether your child has brothers or sisters at the school, distance of your home from alternative schools, and occasionally, special social factors. If your child is refused a place you have the right to appeal to an independent panel.
  • Currently due to COVID-19 restrictions we are not able to host school tours. Please view the virtual tour at the top of this page instead. Can I visit the school before deciding? You are more than welcome to visit us and ask any questions you might have. Please telephone or email the school for an appointment on 01923 678247 or
  • Can I get a place for an older or younger child? If you have moved into the area and would like a place at the school for your child please complete the in year admission form or collect a copy from the school office.
