An 'in year admission' is when a child already attends a school but wishes to transfer to another school outside of the usual transfer time, for example because the child is moving to a new address. These transfers take place during the academic year, which is why they are referred to as in year admissions.

Applications for admission into primary, infant, junior and middle schools to start in September open during November of the previous year and close in the January of the year of admission. Online applications can still be made after that date but will be treated as late applications. A guide for parents and carers of children applying for a primary place (Reception Classes) or junior school (Year 3) for academic year 2022-23 is available by clicking on the link below:
If your child is in Year 2 at an infant school you must apply for a place at a junior school.
The website includes an interactive copy of the “Applying for a school place” booklet and a directory for all schools with reception classes, junior schools and middle schools in Hertfordshire.
It is recommend that you visit the website to view the admissions booklet and apply online because:
