Tiebreakers: The Governing Body will give top priority to an application within a category where professional evidence is provided at the time of application of an exceptional social, medical or pastoral need of the child which can be most appropriately met by this school.
Where the offer of places to all the applicants in any of the sub-categories listed above would still lead to oversubscription, the number of places allocated to families resident in each of the four parishes will be in proportion to the number of applications received from applicants resident in each particular parish. Places up to the proportional admission number will be offered to those living nearest the school in accordance with the home-school measurement system used by Hertfordshire County Council. If there are fewer applications than there are places available for residents of a parish, those places will be allocated proportionately to the remaining parishes.
In addition to our online or paper form, please complete a supplementary information form (SIF) for this school. SIFs are available from the school and at www.hertsdirect.org
The admission of pupils with statements of special educational needs is dealt with by a completely separate procedure under the Education Act 1996. The Governors are obliged by law to admit any child with a statement of Special educational needs where this school is named in the statement. Formal application procedure still has to be followed.
