In-Year Admissions

All local authorities have a statutory duty to coordinate all in-year admissions (primary and secondary) for all maintained schools and academies. This became a requirement in September 2010. This means that all applications for, and allocations of, in-year places must be made via a child’s home local authority. All parents living in Hertfordshire who wish to make an in-year application must apply to Hertfordshire County Council using the in-year application form and not by applying direct to schools, however, please do contact the school in the first instance for further guidance and information about the process and to view the school. Information on in-year admissions, along with a guidance booklet and application form are available below.
