Admissions Consultation 2023-24

The Trust Boards of Hitchin Boys’ and Hitchin Girls’ Schools are consulting on a change to the admission arrangements for 2023/2024. Although each school is its own admissions authority, the proposed change is identical for both schools. The reason for the change and the proposed amendments have been discussed with Hertfordshire County Council who will continue to co-ordinate the Scheme for Admission to each of the Schools. The proposals are outlined below:

  • To amend the criteria for Rules 5 and 6 Your views are sought on a change to the way in which places are allocated to students who live in the priority area for the school. No change is proposed to the towns and parishes that comprise the priority area.
  • To amend the definition and explanation for home address, where two applications are received for the same child

More information on the reasons for the proposed changes and the proposed admission arrangements for 2023-24 can be found on the right. The consultation period runs from 15 November 2021 to 31 December 2021. Please send your comments regarding the proposals to the school by email to or by writing to us as follows:
