Nursery Admissions

The usual entry points at Abbot’s Hill are Reception (4+), Year 3 (7+) and Year 7 (11+). Occasional vacancies do arise in other year groups. We currently have vacancies in Years 1-3. Please contact Miss Amberley Cooper for more details.


Choosing the right nursery or pre-school for your child is a really big decision. We believe the only way to get true peace of mind is by coming to see us. You are welcome to visit us at our Virtual Virtual Open Events. In normal circumstances, you would have an opportunity to meet our staff, ask any questions that you may have and get a sense of the incredible atmosphere that we create during a nursery day.  At this present time, we cannot accept visitors to the Nursery unfortunately. However our Nursery is extremely popular and we continue to enrol new families. We therefore ask that you contact the Nursery Administrator to discuss our Nursery provision. Zoom calls can be arranged with the Nursery Manager.

You may visit our nursery virtually here: visit.abbotshill.herts.sch.uk

If you wish to apply for a Nursery place please complete a Nursery Registration Form and Confidential Information Form addressed to the Nursery Administrator, along with a non-refundable £50.00 administration fee payable by bank transfer. Once all are received we will contact you regarding availability on the days you have requested and confirm next steps to secure the place with a deposit payment of £500. If there are no places available to offer we will upon request keep your details on a waiting list and contact you in the event that a place becomes available.

Once the £500 deposit payment and paperwork has been received, your child’s place will be guaranteed.

Please only fill out the Registration and Confidential Information Forms if you are sure you want your child to attend. Do not make a deposit payment before you have had correspondence from us regarding availability.

Priority will be given to those with siblings who already attend the nursery or school and those who are interested in registering for a place in the school.

For further details, please contact the Nursery Admissions Administrator on 01442 839 115 or email: nursery@abbotshill.herts.sch.uk.
