General information on all application processes is available on


As an Academy we manage all of our own in-year admissions and Nursery admissions whilst Herts County Council co-ordinates our Reception admissions.


Reception Admissions


The application process for September 2021 (for children whose date of birth is between 1 September 2016 and 31 August 2017) will open on 2nd November 2020 and will close on 15 January 2021.  


Unfortunately due to the current Covid restrictions we are no longer able to offer school tours. However, we have created a virtual tour with videos and information to replace the tours – please find the link to this below! At the end of the presentation you will find a link to three zoom Q&A sessions that are taking place. You are welcome to join any one of these and there is no need to let us know beforehand.
