Secondary Transfer to Year 7

Each year in September, 208 students are admitted to the school.  Places are allocated in strict accordance with our admissions criteria.  For information on how places are allocated, you are advised to read the Admissions Policy for Secondary Transfer 2021.  

CUT-OFF SCORES AND DISTANCES

To find out the furthest distance of a child allocated a place under Proximity/Distance and the lowest scores of a child allocated a place under the Academic and Music criteria, this statistical information is provided here.

We do not have a "catchment area".  However we do have a Priority Postcode Area.

Parents of children that wish to apply for the entrance tests will need to register with the SW Herts Consortium.  Online registration will open in April 2020 and the deadline to register will be in June 2020.    No late applications will be accepted.  Information on the SW Herts Consortium entrance tests can be viewed via the following link:  http://www.swhertsschools.org.uk/.

Secondary Transfer to Year 7 in 2021

This applies to children born between 01/09/2009 and 31/08/10 or who will be in Year 6 from September 2020.

In order for your child to be considered under the Academic and/or Music criterion, you must have registered for the entrance tests by the June deadline.  Late registrations will not be accepted.  Due to the current situation with COVID-19, the Academic entrance tests have been moved to Saturday 17 and Sunday 18 October 2020 and the Music entrance test to Monday 19 and Tuesday 20 October.  The SW Herts Consortium will email candidates with further information.

The deadline for applications is 31 October 2020 and should be made online to the Local Authority from September 2020.  We also request that you complete our online Supplementary Information Form which is available  here.

Please note that, whilst the revised entrance test dates mean that test scores will not now be known prior to the 31 October secondary transfer deadline, we have been informed by Hertfordshire County Council that they will allow a change to school preferences up until 4 December 2020.   Applicants from outside Hertfordshire should check with their own local authority.
