and Nursery School

All different, all together, all Icknield.


In Year Admissions

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.

September Admissions - Reception and Junior

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:


 School Admissions


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:


  • it is quick, easy to use and secure
  • you will receive immediate confirmation that your application
    has been received and you can view it at any time
  • you can change your application at any time up to the closing date
  • you can accept the school place offered online


If you do not have internet access at home you can use the internet at your local library free of charge.


If you are unable to apply online you can request a booklet, which includes the application form
and a local school directory by calling 0300 123 4043.
