The rules have changed following the school's move to an academy - but we do not predict that this will have an immediate impact on admission patterns, so the Calculator can still give you a handy guide to your chances of success.
Children looked after and previously children looked after.
Children with a sibling on the Academy’s roll in years 7 to 10 at the time of application and who are reasonably expected to be on the Academy’s roll at the time of entry.
Priority to children of all staff employed by the Academy who, at the deadline for application, have been employed for two years or more or have been recruited to fill a vacant post for which there is a demonstrable skills shortage and in both cases will be working at Hertswood at the time the child starts.
Other children by distance from the Academy, with priority being given to those children who live nearest to the Academy. (If two children live the same distance from the Academy random allocation will be used as a tie break and this random allocation process will be independently supervised) using the home-school measurement system used by Hertfordshire County Council as outlined in the County's admission arrangements and application literature.
Distance will be used as a tie-break, if required, in criteria 1-3 above.
