Secondary Transfer 2018

Sports Camps for new Year 7s

The Danes Multi-Sports Day Camps take place at St Clement Danes School from Monday 30th July to Friday 3rd August this year.

The camps run from 9.30am to 3pm each day and are only open to students going into Year 7 at either St Clement Danes or Croxley Danes in September. As such, it is a great way for them to meet new friends and try out unfamiliar sports. Activities include tennis, cricket, hockey, trampolining, basketball, football, rounders and many more and are run by fully qualified PE teachers who work at the school.

The cost of the camp is £25 per day; students are welcome to attend for the whole week or individual days as required.

To book a place on the camp, please provide the following details and a cheque for the appropriate amount, made payable to St Clement Danes School.

Child’s name:

Which school they are attending in September (SCD or CDS):

Which day(s) they would like to attend: Mon / Tue / Wed / Thur / Fri / Whole week

Amount enclosed (cheque only please):

Parent’s name and signature:

This should be sent to Ms D Bargh, Danes Multi-Sports Day Camps, St Clement Danes School, Chenies Road, Chorleywood WD3 6EW.

We have sent this information out by email, but do not have email addresses currently for all parents, so please do alert anyone you know who may be interested. A flier will also be included in the pack we send to all families in June.


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 which will be posted on the afternoon of March 1st.  We would ask that you accept or decline your place.

If you have not been successful in your application to this school, emails will be sent sent out on 2nd March (snow permitting) with information regarding your child's position on the continuing interest list and also information about how to appeal. We would request that you do not call the school for an update of your child’s position on the Continuing Interest List.

Following National Allocation Day, all applicants who listed St Clement Danes School higher than the school they have been allocated will automatically be rolled onto the continuing interest list. You will not remain on St Clement Danes School's continuing interest list if you have been allocated a school you ranked higher than it in your application.


It is worth noting that we receive few withdrawals at this stage and it is therefore important that you make alternative arrangements for your child by accepting a place at another secondary school.  There is no statistical analysis, from one year to the next, as to how many places will be accepted or declined by applicants.  The variation is such that it would be misleading to rely solely on the data from previous years and use it as a benchmark for your own application.

All unsuccessful applicants are entitled to appeal.  The deadline for registering is 4.00pm on 31st March 2017. 


If you wish to appeal against the Governors’ decision not to award you a place you will need to either

  1. Follow the link: https://www.hertfordshire.gov.uk/services/schools-and-education/school-admissions/secondary-and-upper-schools/secondary-school-appeals.aspx# and log in with the details you used when making your application.
  2. If you did not apply through the Hertfordshire on line application system please contact Hertfordshire Local Authority Customer Service Centre on 0300 123 4043.               

Hertfordshire Local Authority are organising all of St Clement Danes appeals.  From their information you will note that the Authority will require your completed Appeal Form to be returned to them by 4pm on 29th March 2018. It is possible for you to remain on the Continuing Interest list without lodging an appeal. 

A Frequently Asked Questions document can be found at the bottom of this page. We would respectfully request that you consult this before contacting the school with queries.

The Admissions Office is routinely open on Wednesday and Friday from 9am to 4.30pm during term time. We would request that you do not call the school during this busy period but if you have any queries please email admissions@stclementdanes.herts.sch.uk
