Cohort Entry

St Albans School along with other schools in our cluster has adopted cohort entry.

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 2021 they would enter school as a New Entrant on 03/02/2022. If they turn five on the February 9th 2022 their start date would be 14/03/22.
