The first round allocation for Admission to EYFS in September 2020 has now been completed. However as a result of our double intake for this year, there are places still available. If you were disappointed with the place allocated to your child, or have recently moved into the area, you may apply for a place using the Herts on-line application system. We also welcome applications from Summer Born children, seeking to restart their Reception Year. Please note that we are a diverse community and encourage applications from those of different faiths, or none.
Although the school is currently not open to the public owing to COVID-19, if you would like to find out more about the school before you apply, please email admin@st-catherine.herts.sch.uk to arrange an initial discussion.

Welcome to our website which is intended to be used by both children and their parents as an introduction and insight into the hopes and aspirations of our school community. We are constantly updating the website with school information, important dates, Tweets, newsletters and news but if you feel there is anything you would like to see that we haven’t included, then please do let us know. If you have any questions please feel free to contact us here at the school and we will do our very best to answer them for you.

Head’s Welcome

Welcome to our website – whether you are a parent, pupil, friend or visitor, we hope that it gives you a flavour of how we celebrate our wonderfully diverse, innovative and thriving community. We are blessed by amazing pupils, parents, governors and staff who work together to ensure life in all its fullness for the children entrusted to our care, in a happy, safe and optimistic environment. All our policies and practice reflect the distinctive nature of our Catholic school. We were founded by the Dominican Sisters in 1964, still maintain close links with them and are proud to continue with their rich tradition of providing excellence in education, instilling in our children a love of learning and a passion for life. In a rapidly changing world, we promote learning behaviours and critical skills which will enable our children to thrive and flourish.

We encourage collaboration, communication, creativity and critical thinking, in order to embrace the challenges of the 21st Century. We trust that this means that pupils leave, at the end of Year Six, having grown in the knowledge and love of God, themselves and the world in which we live, as well rounded, happy, confident individuals, who are fully equipped with the experiences, understanding, judgments and skills they need to deal with the opportunities ahead.
