General Admissions

Sandringham School is an all ability co-educational 11-18 academy. We are our own admitting authority but Hertfordshire LA manages the transfer and entry to Sandringham School on our behalf.

*** LATEST NEWS*** New admission criteria for 2019 – 2020.
In consultation with Hertfordshire LA the Governing Body of Sandringham School has now determined new admissions criteria for 2019 – 2018. The criteria have been simplified, dropping the random allocation rule for Wheathampstead and Harpenden. This means that places will be allocated to children nearest the school. Hertfordshire LA have also agreed to support the further expansion of Sandringham School to meet local demographic needs, and the PAN will now remain at 240 (Eight form entry). The new admission criteria for 2019 – 2020 can be downloaded below. If you have nay questions on admissions please address them to Mrs. Lesley Dunkley at the school.

Our admissions criteria for 2018-2019 remain the same as those for 2017-2018. There will be 240 places available to children of transfer age.The application deadline has passed and allocations will be made in March 2018.
