Final Chance For School Applications
31 October 2011, 06:00
It may feel like the school term has only just begun, but today is the last day to get your child's secondary school application in for next year.
A quick and easy way of obtaining all the information you need about the secondary and upper school transfer process is available in an interactive version of the 'Moving On' booklet at www.hertsdirect.org/admissions
The only way left to apply now is online by logging onto www.hertsdirect.org/admissions and completing the online application form. Online applicants can access their school offer before allocation letters are received and parenbts are also able to accept the school allocation online.
Frances Button , Executive Member for Education and Skills, said ''I understand that parents and carers want their children to attend the school they prefer. Hertfordshire has a good track record and last year over 95 per cent of children were allocated one of the their three ranked schools. Hertfordshire County Council is not always able to completely satisfy parental preference, despite working hard to achieve this.''
