Admissions and Transfer
From 2017, children will be admitted into nursery in a single (staggered) intake.
Admission to Reception takes place in the September before the child’s fifth birthday.
For nursery applications, you're much less likely to get your preferred school if you apply late. We don't deal with applications received after the deadline until all on time applications have been considered. You will be offered the opportunity of being placed on a waiting list. This waiting list will be maintained by the school office in the order of the oversubscription criteria and not in the order in which the applications are received. Names are removed from the list at the end of each academic year. When a place becomes available the school office will apply the oversubscription criteria and make an offer.
Parents whose children are due to enter school during the following academic year, or who have moved into the area with children of primary school age, can apply for a school place by visiting
Families who move intothe area after the allocations have been made will need to contact the Admissions Team on 0300 123 4043, if your child is due to start in reception or above the school directly if your child is of nursery age.
Parents of prospective pupils are encouraged to visit Tudor School before making their choice. If you need help in submitting your application, please visit the school office. In common with all Hertfordshire local authority maintained schools, if we have spaces, we accept all children regardless of ability. If classes are oversubscribed, then the county admissions criteria are applied (also available at the above website), which do not discriminate against children with disabilities.
A familiarisation visit is arranged for new entrants to meet their new teachers in Reception and Nursery. Transfer to secondary school is in the September after a child’s 11th birthday.
Parents have the opportunity to visit all the secondary schools in the previous Autumn Term. Full details of the arrangements are sent to parents at this time.
