Reception Class applications for September 2022

The online application system has now closed. Please contact the Office Manager who will be happy to assist with any queries related to admissions that you may have. If you would like your child to join Abbey School please arrange to visit the school and see it working, to meet the staff and talk with the Headteacher.

Full details about admissions to Primary School can be found on the Herts Direct Website.

All applications must be supported by a supplementary admission form, which should be submitted to the School Office electronically or by post. For applications under Category 4, parents must also submit a Cathedral Form for applicants, signed by the Sub Dean of St Albans Cathedral.

In Year Admissions

In the case of older children for whom application is made to join the school in other year groups, admission will be on the basis of places being available in the relevant year group. We have a Pupil Admission Number (PAN) of 30 children per year group. If there are more applicants than there are places available, the relevant admissions criteria will apply. All ‘In Year’ applications will be managed by the Hertfordshire County Council (HCC), but a Supplementary Information Form is still requested along with an In Year application, which must be resubmitted every September.

We currently have some places available across the school. Please contact the Office Manager who will be happy to assist with any queries and offer a tour of the school.
