We hope that you feel St Catherine of Siena Catholic Primary School would be the right choice for your family. We would love to welcome you to St Catherine’s and show you the school we have created and what we can offer your child or children.

In the meantime please take a look around our website to see everything that we can offer to your child. As there is a lot of information here, the pages under EYFS, RE, Curriculum and Parents menus above would be good places to start.

To apply for a place you must complete an online application through Hertfordshire’s Admissions Team by following this link, and complete the Supplementary Information Form (SIF) below, which must be delivered to the school office along with the required documentation.

You will be advised of the outcome of your application in writing as soon as possible. Applicants must be informed of the outcome of their application within 15 school days of receipt, but the aim is to notify applicants of the outcome of their application within 10 school days of receipt. You have the right to appeal to an independent appeal panel if your application is unsuccessful.

Applications for classes that are full will be placed on the ‘Continuing Interest List’. When a place becomes available, the Admissions Committee meets to rank applications according to the admissions policy below. Places are then offered out to the applicant ranked the highest. Please note: the applications are reset annually at the end of June; you must re-apply from 1st July if you wish to stay on the continuing interest list for the following academic year.
