Welcome to School Admissions & Transport
Going to a new school is a very important step for your child. Hertfordshire County Council wants to make the process of applying for a school place as easy as possible for parents and carers.
The information on these pages is intended to guide you through the application and allocation process. Please contact us if you have any questions.
In Year Applications
In year applications are where children wish to change school outside the usual transfer period. We are now accepting applications for admission in September 2013. The process for applying for In Year admissions has changed and you should carefully read the information on the In Year pages using the link on the left.
We aim to process In Year applications within 10 working days of receipt, although at this busy time of year please allow 15 working days.
Reminder: In Year continuing interest lists for 2012/13 close on the 24 July 2013. You must make a new In Year application if you still wish your child to be considered for a place at the school and should use the link on the left to find out how to do this.
