We are delighted that you are considering applying for a place for your child to join Croxley Danes School in September 2018. Our oversubscription criteria for 2018, together with Frequently Asked Questions are available to download at the bottom of the page.

Online applications open with Local Authorities from 1st September. Please remember that as well as applying online, where you  must select Croxley Danes School as one of your choices, you should also complete a Supplementary Information Form (SIF) which will be available with our prospectus at our Open Evening on 26th September. This SIF (or application form) is also available to download at the bottom of this page for those who are unable to attend the Open Evening.

Please include a self-addressed stamped envelope with the application you send us. We will then send this back to you to act as proof of receipt.

Open Evening

We hope you will attend our Open Evening which will be held in the Barbirolli Hall at St Clement Danes School, Chenies Road, Chorleywood WD3 6EW - details below. A prospectus and application form will be available at this evening, there will be video messages from students and the Headteacher and other staff will give detailed presentations about the admissions process and future plans for the school.  

There is no need to book a place, so why not come along to find out how we are building a brand new, high quality school using St Clement Danes as our blueprint?

Open Eve Ad 2017

Although there will be parking on site, we expect the evening to be very busy. Please share cars wherever possible with other families. We look forward to seeing you there!

Historical Information

1. Distance

In 2017, the last accepted place was awarded at a distance of 6370.32 m from the address point on the permanent site of the school in Baldwins Lane, Croxley Green. The closest known postcode to this site is WD3 3LS. Please visit the following page to see a map of the permanent site: Baldwins Lane - Information about the permanent site.

Please note that parents should not rely too heavily on this distance to predict the distance at which places will be awarded in 2018. This is because:

  1. The size of year group is not comparable (in 2017 we accepted 120 students and in 2018 we will offer 180 places)
  2. The sibling rule will become applicable
  3. In 2018, 18 places will be awarded on the basis of musical aptitude (this was not the case in 2017)

2. Musical Aptitude

As 2018 will be the first year in which places will be awarded on the basis of the musical aptitude test results, we are not able to provide historical information, nor are we able to estimate the score which might succeed in gaining one of the 18 places available under this criterion.
