All Reception aged children will join the school from September.  Children start school in stages, aiming for all children to be settled in full time by autumn half term.
As an 'Academy' school, Hertfordshire County Council's Education Department deals with applications for Reception admissions.  Providing that you live within Hertfordshire and have registered with a local doctor, you should automatically receive information about the admissions process.  HCC prefer on-line applications and the school office can help with this if necessary.
