The Reception year group at Pirton School is being expanded from September 2021 and will continue in each subsequent Reception year group moving forward.  This is to meet increased local demand. Hertfordshire County Council and Pirton School are working closely together to ensure that families moving into the village will be able to successfully access a school place at Pirton School for their children in all year groups, as their nearest school.

We welcome parents contacting the school directly to discuss your individual applications.

Pirton School is a Hertfordshire School and the Local Authority manages our admissions. If you would like your child to attend our school, further information can be found on the Hertfordshire County Council website by following this link: School Admissions

2021 School Open Days

We will be hosting two opportunities for prospective parents to look round the school prior to making applications for Reception places for September 2022. At the start of each session parents will be asked to meet in the School Hall when staff and governors will greet parents. This welcome talk will be followed by a tour of the external areas of the school and a further opportunity to speak with staff and governors about any individual concerns. 

Unfortunately following Covid advice from the local authority there will no longer be an opportunity to look round the classrooms during these visits.

We are asking all visitors to wear face coverings when entering the school building. Seating in the School Hall will be socially distanced.

Dates and time are as follows:

Tuesday 16 November 2021 – 1.30 to 3pm
Wednesday 17 November 2021 – 9.30 to 11am

There is no need to book in advance. Please do get in touch if you have any questions.
