As Cassiobury Infant and Nursery School is a Community School, the local authority, Hertfordshire County Council (HCC), is the admission authority and is responsible for setting the admission arrangements and allocating places in accordance with the published admission rules.


Children are currently admitted to the school at the beginning of the September term prior to their fifth birthday. Since 2010/11, our standard admission number is 90 children. HCC allocates infant places using their admissions criteria.


Nursery Admissions.

Cassiobury Infant and Nursery School has a large spacious provision with it's own Nursery garden / outdoor area. 

For 2018 -19 we will be offering 30 full time places (9.00am - 3.00pm) and 10 part-time places (9.00am - 12.00pm).
