Reception Admissions 2022
Welcome to Harpenden Academy
There's nothing like first hand experience to give you the insight you need when choosing your child's school. At Harpenden Academy we are holding tours during the Autumn term to give prospective parents the opportunity to visit the school and see us in action.
We are pleased to confirm that we have published the dates for the school tours for any new Reception parents with children starting school in September 2022. Each tour will take an hour and is scheduled on a Tuesday from 9.15am-10.15am or on a Thursday from 13.30pm-14.30pm.
You will have the opportunity to see the classes and the event will be hosted by our Headteacher, Mrs Davies and our EYFS Leader, Mrs Aylott.

From September 2011 all primary schools must offer children a full-time place at the start of the September term. However, legally children do not have to be in full-time education until the term after their 5th birthday. Delaying your child’s entry into school is called ‘deferred entry’. You can request this, but your child must start before the end of the school year during which they turn 5. The expectation is all those starting in September will attend full days but if you are a parent of a summer born child and have concerns over full school days please talk to us.
