Return to Our School


The majority of children attending Benington School live in the village, but our register also includes some from other villages in the area and some from Stevenage. We are pleased to hear from parents who may consider placing their children in our school and will be happy to show them around.

Children may start school in the Autumn Term of the school year in which they have their fifth birthday. Children are allocated places in accordance with Hertfordshire County Council admission procedures.

Should there be pressure on numbers in a particular year group, the approved Hertfordshire admissions policy would be used to determine those children who would be offered places.

A ‘Readiness for School’ programme is in place that begins in the January before new children start school.

Please contact Hertfordshire County Council to apply for a place at school.
