Reception Admissions

Children born between 1 September 2013 and 31 August 2014

We are very proud of our school and we are sure your child will make a fantastic start to their education here!

All children start in Reception in September. We recognise that the first term in Reception is an important transition point and we make sure that activities support all the children, including those who may be away from home for a full day for the first time.

All applications for Reception places are handled by the local authority - you can find more information on the Hertsdirect website. If you do not have easy access to a computer, or if you need any assistance working out what to do, please contact the school office on 01442 406545 - we will be able to help!

Applications open on 6th November and close on 15th January with places being offered on 16th April. A full list of important dates can be found here

We would love to show you around our Early Years setting. We will be holding Prospective Parent Tours as follows:


Friday 3rd November 2017 at 10.30am

Wednesday 15th November at 1.30pm

Please contact the school office to book your place.
