Rule 5: Children living with a parent or parents with a Christian commitment shown by membership of a Christian Church. Should there be more applications than places available under this criterion the following will act as a tie-break in order:

i) Children whose normal residence is within the school’s priority areas and whose parent or parents can also prove that they have a particular medical or social reason that makes St. George’s School uniquely well suited for the child

ii) Children whose normal residence is within the school’s priority areas and whose parent or parents can also prove that they worship in different Christian denominations, and are currently active members of their different Churches

iii) Children whose normal residence is nearest the school, using the straight line home school distance measurement provided by Hertfordshire County Council 

Rule 6: Distance from the school

Tiebreaker: If there are more applicants meeting a rule than there are places available, the subsequent rules will be applied in order as a Tie Break.


In cases where the application of the admissions criteria would result in twins or siblings of a multiple birth being allocated to different schools, one of which is St. George’s School, the Governors will admit over the published admission number to avoid this occurrence.
