Nursery applications

Maintained schools in Hertfordshire are now responsible for the admissions of children to nursery in 2018-19 and onwards.


The following Berkhamsted schools: Bridgewater, Greenway, St Marys, Swing-Gate, Victoria and Westfield, are working together to ensure the process is the same in each school and that parents receive consistent information that will enable them to make informed decisions about their preferred nursery school.


The time line for the nursery admissions process is published below and further information regarding open mornings in each school and the procedure for applying for a nursery place will also be published on each school website shortly.


The following timeline for Nursery applications is being followed by the schools listed above:

5 February 2018 – Nursery applications open. Application via online form on the school website (paper copies are available from the school on request)
