Primary Admissions - Reception September 2022

Primary Admissions for September 2022 are now open!

If your child was born between 1st September 2017 and 31st August 2018 you should be applying for a place at school: applications close on 15th January 2022.

As a maintained school, our admissions are managed by Hertfordshire County Council (HCC).  All of the information you need to make your formal application is on the HCC website.  

We know that it is important for prospective parents to have a look around a school and are delighted to be setting dates for you to come and met us.  This year there will be an opportunity to listen to a talk by the Head teacher and then enjoy a 'tour' of the school.  As the tours take place during a normal school day, we limit numbers to 24 to minimise the disruption to the children - reservations are necessary.  If you would like to book a place, please use the tour booking form link.  All visits are planned for the morning, at 9.15 am and should take about an hour. 

We are looking forward to meeting everyone!

Films - a great way to get a first impression of The Grove

Last year we were not been able to show parents around in person, so we made two films introducing The Grove.  Why not have a look? 


The Grove Junior School

Our 'sister' school shares our site, our passion for high quality Primary education and we know that it helps parents to have the opportunity to understand more about the Juniors when making the decision to come to the Infants!   Why not look at this short film to get a glimpse of school life there?

In Year Admissions
If you arrive in the area and are looking for a school place you are welcome to give us a ring - we currently have spaces in our Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 class for in year admissions and are happy to talk to you about this. Please bear in mind that all in year admissions are dealt with administratively by Hertfordshire County Council and you can contact them on this number:  0300 123 4043.  They will be able to tell you how to secure a place.
