Joining Our School

We hope that you feel St John’s Church of England Primary School would be the right choice for your family. We want to welcome you to St John’s and show you the school we have created and what we can offer your child or children.

Starting School in September 2017

If you are still looking for a place in Reception in September 2017, we currently have 2 places available (correct as of 24.09.17). If you would like to be considered for these places, please contact the school office on 01923 255017 or via

Starting School in September 2018

We have opened booking for our school tours for anyone wanting to find out more about our school before making an application for a place in Reception in September 2018.

Please click here to book your place. We encourage everyone to book at the earliest opportunity.

We have determined our admissions policy for 2018/19 which you can view HERE. We have also updated our Supplementary Information Form (SIF) with further guidance. All applications to the school should be made through Hertfordshire County Council’s coordinated admissions scheme.

For admissions in September 2018, we will have 60 available spaces in Reception. Should the school receive over 60 applications, the oversubscription criteria will be applied. The available spaces will be split 50:50 between Children of the Christian Faith and Community places, allocated without reference to faith. Only those wishing to be considered under the Children of the Christian Faith category are required to complete the SIF in addition to the online application.

Summer Born Children

If you are the parent of a summer born child (born between 1st April and 31st August) who would like to discuss the options available to you, please contact Mrs Moore, Admissions Lead, on 01923 255017 or via

In Year Admissions 17/18

We currently do not have any available places in Year One.  However, you can still make an application to join our waiting list. St John’s operates its own waiting list, therefore you should apply direct to the school to make an In Year application. Should a place become available, we will allocate it to the first child on our waiting list.

If you would like to join the waiting list or if you have any questions or queries, then please contact the school office on 01923 255017 or by emailing

Places are allocated according to our oversubscription criteria as contained in our Admissions Policy for 2017/18.
