Admission to St Nicholas School is dealt with by Hertfordshire County Council.

To enquire about joining our school please go to or call 0300 123 4048 

St Nicholas School is its own admitting authority and determines the admission arrangements for entry into each academic year. 

The admissions arrangements are confirmed with the Governors each year in the Autumn Term.

The number of children needing a Reception place in Hertfordshire is decreasing and, in this area, there are more Reception places than needed to meet local demand. In line with this falling demand, the school will be reducing it's intake across Years 1 and 2 to 30 (in one class) to ensure infant class size legislation is met and the school's financial stability going forward,
