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. The SIF can be downloaded from this webpage, or a paper copy can be requested from the school office in person, by telephoning 01923 255017 or by emailing The SIF needs to be returned directly to school before the deadline for ontime applications.
