Reaching high for the best for your child

Starting Reception in September 2024

We are very proud of our school and we are sure your child will make a fantastic start to their education here!

All children start in Reception in September. We recognise that the first term in Reception is an important transition point and we make sure that the activities support all the children, including those who may be away from home for a full day for the first time.

The application process for Reception 2024/25 opens on 1st November 2023 (Closing date 15th January 2024). All applications for Reception places are handled by the local authority - you can find more information on the Herts County Council website.  If you do not have easy access to a computer, or if you need any assistance working out what to do, please contact the school office on 01438 351053 - we will be able to help.

If you would like more information about applying for a Reception place for September 2024, or would like arrange a visit to come and see our wonderful school, please contact Amy McDonagh (Admissions Administrator) on 01438 351053 or email her at, or the school office team at
