Secondary Transfer September 2020 (current Year 6 children)
If you gave Dame Alice Owen’s School a higher preference than the school you have been allocated you will automatically continue to be considered for a place at Dame Alice Owen’s School up until the end of the summer term. You should accept the place you have been offered – you do not need to take any other action – you will be contacted if we are in a position to offer your child a place. If you wish to be considered for a place beyond July you can make an In Year application for Year 7 via Hertfordshire County Council towards the end of the summer term. This process will be explained in the email/letter you receive.
