If you would like your child to attend our school, please see full details of our admission arrangements below.
Admissions at St.Rose's
As St Rose's is a Voluntary Aided School, the Governors are the admitting authority. The Governors, in consultation with Westminster Diocese Education Service and Hertfordshire Local Education Authority, review and if appropriate, update the admission policies for School and Nursery on an annual basis.
Please note late applications (either school or county) could seriously jeopardise the chances of your child being offered a place at St Rose’s.
Parents are encouraged to complete the HCC application form on line. If you choose to submit a paper HCC application you are encouraged to send it by a method that provides proof of postage, unfortunately schools are no longer permitted to accept HCC forms.
If you would like any help completing the application process, or if you would like to use the school internet access to apply on line, please contact Mrs Power in the office.

Applications for Nursery
As a Voluntary Aided School the application process for a Nursery place is currently operated differently from the Reception Application process, further details can be found on the Herts Direct website.
Parents wishing to apply to St. Rose’s for a Nursery place for their child need to complete the St Rose’s Supplementary Information Form for Nursery. Practising Catholic families are encouraged to also submit a Priest’s Reference as this will strengthen their application. Copies of the child’s Birth and Baptismal Certificates (where a child has been baptised) will also need to be provided with the application.
Please note late applications could seriously jeopardise the chances of your child being offered a place at St Rose’s.
Please check your Parish newsletter for dates and timings when the Priest will be available to sign your forms. Please do not contact the Priest directly.
If you would like any help completing the application process, please contact Mrs Power in the office.
St Rose’s operates a single intake to Nursery each year.

In Year Applications
Parents wishing to apply to St Rose’s for a place for their child within an existing year must contact Hertfordshire County Council (HCC) where you can download the ’In Year Application Guidance Booklet’ and the ‘In Year Application Form’.
In addition to completing the In Year Application Form parents will also need to complete the St Rose’s Supplementary Information Form. Practising Catholic families are encouraged to also submit a "Certificate of Catholic Practise" form as this will strengthen their application. Copies of the child’s Birth and Baptismal Certificates (where a child has been baptised), and a utility bill dated within the last 6 months will also need to be provided with the application.
To provide interested parents the opportunity to come and visit St Rose’s we arrange times when Mrs Tregear, the Headteacher, can meet with groups of parents to discuss our school. During the meeting parents have the opportunity to hear about the application process, our aims for both the pupils and the school, our policies and facilities. The meeting concludes with a tour of our school
If you have not visited St Rose’s but wish to do so, please contact us and we will be able to provide you with the details of any scheduled Open Meetings.
