Admissions Consultation 2025-26
Following a change to administrative parish boundaries across Hertfordshire, Roundwood Park School is consulting to amend its admission arrangements for 2025/26 to ensure our admissions Priority Area accurately reflects these changes.
Currently the parish of Ridge sits within the St Albans/Harpenden Priority Area and the parish of South Mimms sits within the Priority Area for WGC/Hatfield and Potters Bar. These parishes have now been amalgamated to form a new single parish of “South Mimms-Ridge”. For 2025/26, the governing board are proposing to remove the existing parish of Ridge from the admissions Priority Area for Roundwood Park School. The newly amalgamated parish will be fully incorporated into the Priority Area for WGC/Hatfield & Potters Bar.
This change will only impact upon students applying from the parish of Ridge.
The proposed admission arrangements can be found below.
The consultation is open between 10 December 2023 and 20 January 2024. To respond, please email email@example.com
