Information for External Applicants


Students from outside the area wishing to be taught in Welwyn & Hatfield need to apply to the Sixth Form in one of the schools. We strongly recommend that they visit the schools to make sure that they feel comfortable with their new surroundings, where potentially they will be spending the next two years of their life.


When to apply?


It is best to apply to our secondary schools between September and June when you are in Year 11. Our secondary schools will then process your application form depending on your choice of subjects. Your timetable will then be based within the Consortium with access to facilities at all sites. Every effort is made by the Consortium to ensure your lessons are taught at the home site, but this is not always possible.


Transport facilities


All schools have excellent transport links. The Consortium also provides transport at lunch time between the different sites.




Applications from external students will be subject to academic references from the school they attend in Year 11. Offers will only be made upon receipt of these references and a successful interview. In the case of any behavioural concerns being raised, the site applied for will conduct a risk assessment before any offer is made.



If in doubt….


Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any further queries. Please see our ‘Contact Us' page to access the schools’ contact details.
