Applying for a place


Choosing the right school your child can be a daunting decision. To help you make that decision please visit our school to meet our staff and pupils. Please contact the school office on 01920 461678 to arrange a visit. In meantime we hope you enjoy looking at our website.


Sacred Heart is a Catholic school serving the Catholic community of Ware and surrounding villages. We welcome applications from all faiths as well as none, which ensures we remain a dynamic and vibrant community. 


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)  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.

Additional Information

In Year Admissions


Admission to Reception outside of the usual time frame of admission and to Yr1 to Yr 6 is managed by the school’s In-Year Applications Process.

Please contact the school for more information and to find out about availability of places.

You will need to :

Complete an In-Year Application Form

Complete a Supplementary Information Form
Return the above forms together with a copy of your child's Baptism Certificate (if applicable) to Ms Cooper at Sacred Heart Catholic Primary School.

Once the documents have been received, your child's name will be placed on our Waiting List or you will be offered a place if one is available and you are the highest ranking applicant.

The Waiting List will be maintained by the Governing Body in the order of the Oversubscription Criteria (see Admissions Policy below) and not in the order in which the applications are received.

A letter will be sent to applicants in the Summer Term of the current academic year requesting confirmation that the candidate wishes to stay on the Waiting List.
If confirmation is not received in writing together with new documentation, the candidate's name will be removed at the end of the current academic year.

If you have any questions regarding In-Year applications, please speak to Ms Cooper
