General Admissions Overview

Ralph Sadleir School is a mixed middle school, covering school years 5-8 for children aged 9-13.  The school’s Published Admission Number (PAN) for the school is 90.

Our school has a three form entry cohort in Year 5 annually.  Most pupils come from the adjoining first school and the other 8 schools in the three-tier pyramid.  The majority of children attending Ralph Sadleir live in Hertfordshire.

Since Puckeridge and the surrounding areas have continued to grow over the years there have always been sufficient places at Ralph Sadleir School for the transfer at the 9+ age group.

All the published information for Hertfordshire residents can be found at as well as the Application Form.
