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.
September 2019 Admissions Process
There is a separate process for applications to Katherine Warington for September 2019. You should complete the HCC common application form for your other choices of school in addition to a separate application for this school. You can nominate up to 4 preferences under the HCC common application process and then complete an additional application for Katherine Warington School. You will be offered a place at one of your nominated preferences (places and admissions criteria permitting) AND a place at Katherine Warington School (places and admissions criteria permitting).Offers will be made on 01/03/2019. If we have not entered into a funding agreement with the Secretary of State opening the school by that date, the Katherine Warington offer will be a conditional offer and will be confirmed once we have a signed funding agreement. Further details are in the Katherine Warington Admissions Policy and the application form on this page.
