In-Year Admissions 2023-24
The Bishop’s Stortford High School is normally heavily over-subscribed in each year group.
We very rarely have any vacancies as the number of students in a year group would need to fall below the agreed admission number before we could offer a place.
As we are responsible for our In Year applications all enquiries regarding in-year spaces should be made directly to the school.
To make an application for an In Year place you will need to complete the In Year Application form below and return to the school. Parents will be notified of the outcome of the application in writing within 10 days of receipt. If you have been unsuccessful, the county council will write to you with registration details to enable you to set up an appeals account online. The appeals portal is at www.hertfordshire.gov.uk/schoolappeals should you wish to appeal . The Bishop’s Stortford High School uses the HCC central clerking service for the administration of admission appeals. Parents can appeal against an admission decision, in accordance with current legislation and the School Admission Appeals Code.
Continued Interest Lists for each year are maintained at the school. Any places which do become available are filled in accordance with our published admission arrangements.
