The school and Hertfordshire County Council (HCC) operates two separate admission systems for Nursery and Reception. This means that the offer of a place in Nursery does not guarantee a place in school.
Full information on the School Admissions process can be found on the HCC website via the link below. If you have any further questions, please contact HCC direct.
Whilst the process is online, we are happy to support you in any way that we can. For example, we can:
- Provide you with a paper application form;
- Help you to apply online or do it on your behalf;
- Support and guide you through the application process.

In Year Admissions – Nursery places for 2017-2018
If you would like a place in our nursery for the current academic year (2017/18) please contact the school office on 0208 428 3447 or firstname.lastname@example.org to see if we have any places available or to be placed on a waiting list.
The next round of admissions for Nursery is September 2018.
Parents are also directed to: www.hertfordshire.gov.uk/parents where they can find more information.
Children are accepted into Nursery in the September before their fourth birthday.
Children enter school at the beginning of the Autumn Term. Our annual admission limit is 30.
Parents are encouraged to make an appointment to visit the school when considering their child’s educational future. Whenever possible, Miss Lake (Headteacher) will show you around the whole school so you are able to make a fully informed decision. You will also have opportunities to ask questions about how Woodhall will meet the educational and social needs of your child.
Parents of registered children will be sent a copy of the booklet ‘Starting School’ containing a Primary School Admission Application Form in the Autumn Term prior to the year of admission. Applications can be done on-line or completed forms returned to the local admissions team where they will be processed and then allocation letters will be sent out to parents early in the Spring Term.
When schools are oversubscribed the rules for admission are applied by Hertfordshire County Council giving priority to children with a statement for Special Educational Needs, those with a brother/sister already at the school, compelling medical or social reasons and children for whom the school is the nearest in relation to alternative schools.
‘In Year’ Admissions
An application to move between schools straight away (or within a few weeks) is known as an ‘In Year’ application. This is when a child wishes to transfer to another school outside of the usual transfer time, for example because of a change of address.
