Allocations 2019 - continuing interest

Published: 21 Mar 2019

Councillor Terry Douris, Hertfordshire County Council’s Cabinet Member for Education, Libraries and Localism, said: “Following our first round of continuing interest I am pleased to say that, as expected, all Hertfordshire children have now been offered a school place.


“Across Hertfordshire, 575 new allocations to preference schools will be released today. In the St Albans district, 212 children will be sent a new offer today, with 138 children being offered a place at a preference school.


“These places have been offered in accordance with our allocations process and the admission arrangements of individual schools and academies. Of the 189 children who have been waiting for a place, 61% have been offered one at their ranked schools.


“We really appreciate the last few weeks have been a worrying time for parents in the St Albans and Harpenden areas and hope that they are now able to accept the places offered by Thursday 28 March.


“170 places at Katherine Warington – a new free school funded and delivered by the Department for Education set to open in September 2019 – have now been allocated.”
