Admissions and Transitions

In-Year Admissions

Going to a new school is a very important step for each child.  We welcome children and their families throughout the school year and are very used to settling children in, some of whom don't speak any English at all. Hertfordshire wants to make the process of applying for a school place as easy as possible for parents and carers, please apply via the in-year admissions systems.
