Cohort Entry

St Albans School along with other schools in our cluster have adopted cohort entry from term one 2020.

This means:
• children starting school in groups after they have turned five
• there will be two entry points each term, one on the first day of term and one at a mid-point during a term.

For example:
If your child turns five on December 29th 2019 they would enter school as a New Entrant on 03/02/2020. If they turn five on the February 9th 2020 their start date would be 09/03/20.
