Parents are invited to apply for their child’s Nursery place in the spring before the academic year that their child turns 4. Academic years run from September to August.

Applications for our Nursery, which is open Monday - Friday 8.45am – 3:15pm should be made directly to the school.

Please click on the Nursery Admissions button above for further details.

When applying for a Reception place, please be aware that you will not necessarily be allocated a place even though you attended the school's Nursery.  The County's admissions policy is adhered to, regardless of the Nursery you attended.

For further details, please do click on the Reception Admissions button above.

Finally, should you wish for your child to transfer to Kimpton Primary following a period of time at another school, you must follow the Hertfordshire guidance on In Year Admissions.  This applies to all pupils who are in Years 1 - 6.  This procedure can be followed at any point in the school year and as soon as a place is available at your chosen school, you will be notified.

For further details, please do click on the In Year Admissions button above.

The secondary school application process is a stressful time for any parent.  Looking for the next step in your child's education when there are so many to look at can feel overwhelming.  As a school we try to support you in this process.  Kimpton is a small village on the outskirts of both Harpenden and Hitchin and the majority of our children go on to attend a Harpenden Secondary School.

For further details, please do click on the Secondary School Application Process button above where we will guide you through the support offered as well as the application process.  If we can be of any further assistance, please do ask.
