In Year Admissions
The In-year admissions process is applicable to students who apply for a place at Dame Alice Owen’s other than at Secondary Transfer or at the start of the Sixth Form. In-year admissions can only be made if places become available due to students leaving the school and the school population within an academic year falling below the published admission number of 200. However, please be aware the school is heavily oversubscribed and we currently have no vacancies.
The In Year admissions process is co-ordinated for us via Hertfordshire County Council. If you wish to apply to Dame Alice Owen’s you can do so at http://www.hertsdirect.org/services/edlearn/admissions/adminfo/appinyear/ tel 0300 123 4043). The Governors of Dame Alice Owen’s School remain responsible for the allocation of places at the school.
Children who have been unsuccessful in gaining a place for admission to Year 7 can, on request, be placed on our Continuing Interest List from which any vacancies will be filled in accordance with our published Oversubscription Criteria for that admissions round.
For entry to year's 8-11 further CI Lists for each year will be maintained. Any vacancies will be filled in accordance with the following oversubscription criteria in number order:- 1. Sibling, 2. Proximity to School. Children’s names will automatically remain on the CI list until the end of Year 10. Note: Completion of a SIF is not required.
On request to the School, parents will be informed of their child’s place on the applicable CI List but should be aware that this position may change.
We would appreciate if you could refer to our comprehensive FAQ's list before contacting the school with any further queries, as you may find the answer to your question here. This will enable our Admissions Officer and general office staff to deal with priority calls - thank you for your consideration.
