All successful applicants to St Thomas More School will receive a Welcome Pack at the beginning of June. This will include an invitation to our Visit Morning, which will take place July 4th 2019. We strongly recommend that parents and children keep this morning free, as it is an opportunity for the children to meet their future classmates while their parents attend an information session.

As St Thomas More School is a Voluntary Aided School, the admission criteria are those of the Governing Body. You should, therefore, complete the application for this school in order for the Governors to consider your application. You must also apply to Hertfordshire County Council (HCC) before your application to St Thomas More School can be considered by the Governors (please see 'To make an application to HCC' below). If you live outside Hertfordshire at the time of application, you should apply through your home Local Authority.
