Admissions & Key Information


We are keen to see your child with us here at MPL.  As an Academy we manage all of our own in-year admissions and Nursery admissions whilst Herts County Council co-ordinates our Reception admissions. Please click on the link below for our Determined Admissions Arrangements.

September 2024 admissions for Reception

We are currently consulting on reducing our published admissions numbers (PAN) from 45 to 30 children for the September 2024 intake. This will reduce our school from it's current 1.5 form entry to a 1 form entry school. Please contact us at if you would like any further information on this.
