Secondary Transfer 2018

National Allocation Day – 1 March 2018

Depending on the method used in applying for a school place, you will receive either an email or a letter from the Local Authority on 1 March 2018 notifying you of the school place your child has been allocated for September 2018. If your application to this school has been successful, you will also receive a letter from the school confirming the offer of the place. 

If you have not been successful in your application to this school, emails will be sent out on 2nd March with information regarding your child's position on the continuing interest list and also information about how to appeal.

Following National Allocation Day, all applicants who listed Croxley Danes School higher than the school they have been allocated will automatically be rolled onto the continuing interest list. You will not remain on this school's continuing interest list if you have been allocated a school you ranked higher than Croxley Danes on your Local Authority form.

The Admissions Office is routinely open on Wednesday and Friday from 9am to 4.30pm during term time. If you have any queries please email


Open Evening

We were delighted to see so many people at our Open Evening and overwhelmed by the numbers attending. We are sorry if you did not manage to get into the hall to be able to hear the presentations. Because of this, we have recorded the Headteacher's speech. It will not win any prizes for editing, but we hope that it gives you the opportunity to see what you missed. It contains a video of students from Year 7 talking about their time at the school so far which can be viewed at 11 minutes in. We have also posted the FAQs we handed out at the bottom of the page together with the slides from the presentation.



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 postcode of the site is WD3 3RT. 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. 

Musical Aptitude Testing


Test results will be available by logging on to the parent portal using your email and secure password from 16th October 2017.
