The governors will give top priority to an applicant within a category where evidence is provided from the appropriate authorities (for example a letter from a registered health professional such as a doctor or social worker), at the time of application, an exceptional social, medical, pastoral or other need of the child, which can most appropriately be met at this school.
Priorities within the individual categories will be determined by the geographical proximity of the applicant’s home to school as measured by Hertfordshire County Council.
The Governing Body will admit twins, triplets or other multiple applications from one family for the same year group, or armed forces personnel even if the statutory limit of 30 places is exceeded.
