The agreed (determined) admission arrangements will be published on our website by 15th March 2019.

Applying for a place
Our school is a Voluntary-Aided School, which means the Governors have responsibility for admissions to the school. In order to apply for a place in our Reception class, you will need to complete a Supplementary Information Form (SIF) and a Certificate of Catholic Practice Form (only available from the Parish Priest) in addition to the standard application form from Hertfordshire County Council. You can download the Supplementary Information form below, and once completed, should be returned to the school office by the closing date of application in the academic year prior to the child starting Reception.
