At the end of 2017 the Harpenden Secondary Education Trust began a consultation process regarding changing the admissions policy for Katherine Warington School to bring it in line with the arrangements already in place at Sir John Lawes and Roundwood Park Schools. This was to come in to effect for admissions into Year 7 in September 2019, the second year that the school would take an intake of Year 7 students. Subsequently the opening of the school was deferred to September 2019. We have been informed by DfE that the admissions criteria must remain the same as the previous policy until the school opens. Hence we have reverted to the original admissions policy that would have been in effect for 2018. That policy is below.
