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 a free Consortium Bus at lunch time to allow students to travel easily between the different sites.


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.
