Three Year Old Nursery Admissions

Applications for our Three Year Old Nursery are made directly to the school. An online application to go on the waiting list may be submitted here. Alternatively an application form can be downloaded here.

If your child currently attends another setting, please check the period of notice that you need to give.

If we have more applications than places available, the following criteria will be applied:
1. Children for whom it can be demonstrated that they have a particular medical or social need to go to the school.
2. Children who have a sibling at the school who will still be attending at the time of admission.
3. Distance from school. Priority will be given to those who live nearest to the nursery as measured in a straight line. Where there is a need for a tie-breaker where two different addresses measure the same distance from a school, in the case of a block of flats for example, the lower door number will be deemed nearest as logically this will be on the ground floor and therefore closer. If there are two identical addresses of separate applicants, the tie break will be random.

*Distances will be calculated by using Hertfordshire County Council’s ‘Find a School’ tool at
