You can send your child to The Grove from wherever you live, unless we are oversubscribed. We use the same admissions criteria as all of the maintained schools in Hertfordshire, with priority given to those with overriding social or medical factors, those with siblings already at the school and then those for whom it is the closest school.
This year parents of children born between 1st September 2014 and 31st August 2015 will be applying for a school place.
All applications are managed by Hertfordshire County Council - the link to their website is below. Please contact the admissions team if you need any help: you can call the help line 0300 123 4043, email firstname.lastname@example.org or go online for advice at www.hertfordshire.gov.uk/admissions - see link below
And of course you can always ring the school and ask to speak to us about any queries you may have. We will do our best to support you. Allocation day will be in April 2019 - you should receive news about your application and then you are asked to accept or decline the place. County continue to administer the admissions arrangements and can help anyone with queries.
We are offering parents the chance to meet the Head teacher, listen to some information about the school and enjoy the opportunity to look around on the days listed below.
