Starting School

  • Children start High Beeches in September of the year that they turn 5.

Children in the Reception class initially attend for mornings for approximately the first week, depending on their age. Our Reception class teachers meet with parents soon after their child starts and suggest ways of supporting them in school.

Admission Arrangements

We follow the agreed Hertfordshire County Council (HCC) admission policy which likes all children to start school in September.

You can check if the school has any vacancies in your desired year group by clicking this link.
