We are please that you are considering a place at our school for your child. Choosing the right school for your child is an important decision and we encourage parents to visit the school prior to applying for a place at Bowmansgreen. To arrange a visit, please telephone the School Office on 01727 767772.

We believe that all children of school age benefit from starting school together at the beginning of the school year, regardless of differences in age: the children are introduced to the learning environment, their peers and school routines in a gradual and planned way. For this reason, we will only consider requests for deferred or part-time entry in exceptional cases and where there is clear evidence that this is in the best interests of the child. Any requests for admissions outside of a child’s normal age group must be made to the local authority in the first instance and before the closing date.

Our admission procedures follow Hertfordshire County Council’s Admission Rules and places in our reception classes are allocated by Hertfordshire County Council.
