Buntingford First School

Buntingford First School is a brand new school planned to open in the south of Buntingford in September 2023. It will initially offer 30 Reception places alongside a nursery class. It will also offer places in Year 1 to Year 4 to meet any in-year local demand. We are working with the Scholars Education Trust, who will run the school, and are excited about the opportunity to add to the excellent education offer already available in the town. The school was originally planned to open in September 2022 but delays in the planning process mean that the school will now open in its brand new buildings in September 2023. 

Buntingford First will be a pilot to achieve the first fully net zero carbon school in the county, in line with our carbon neutral ambitions. 

Prospective parents will be able to apply for a place at the new school from 1 November 2022. The new school will be open to pupils across all other year groups from September 2023 – parents will be able to make an in year application for a place in years 1-4 in the summer term prior to opening.
