Reception Admissions 2023-24
Applications opened on 1st September 2022 and closed on 15th January 2023.
To apply for a Reception place, parents are requested to complete both the Hertfordshire online application form available at: www.hertfordshire.gov.uk/services/schools-and-education/school-admissions/school-admissions-and-transport.aspx. and our school’s Supplementary Information Form (SIF) which is available to download by clicking on the link below or from the School Office firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Supplementary Information Form (SIF) should be returned to the school office with a copy of your child’s baptismal certificate and a Certificate of Catholic Practice, if these are applicable. We also require a proof of address (a utility or council tax bill or tenancy agreement dated within the last 3 months).
The Certificate of Catholic Practice is available from the church where you usually worship.
Certificates of Catholic Practice
For those parents and guardians who need to obtain a certificate of Catholic Practice to accompany their child’s application for a school or nursery place.

In-Year Admissions Reception – Year 6
Where there is no waiting list the Local Authority will be notified and the child will be admitted. If more applications are received than there are places available, then applications will be ranked by the governing body in accordance with the oversubscription criteria. We will write to you with the outcome of your application and, if you have been unsuccessful, the county council will write to you with registration details to enable you to login and appeal online at www.hertfordshire.gov.uk/schoolappeals. You will be offered the opportunity of being placed on a waiting list. This waiting list will be maintained by the governing body in the order of the oversubscription criteria and not in the order in which the applications are received. Names are removed from the list at the end of each academic year. When a place becomes available the governing body will re-rank the list and an offer will be made.”
