School Admissions

CLICK HERE to visit the North Yorkshire County Council website for Primary School Admissions to follow their online application process. 

Primary School Admissions

You can apply online 24/7 for a primary school place from 18 September 2016. It is your responsibility to ensure you have read all of the information provided to you via this website before applying online.

If you live within North Yorkshire and your child was born between 1 September 2012 and 31 August 2013, your child will be due to start school in the academic year 2017-18 and you will need to apply for a primary school place for September 2017.

If you do not live in North Yorkshire you will need to apply to your home authority.

You must complete the application form as soon as possible and no later than 15 January 2017. This is to allow the authority to allocate a school place for your child in accordance with our agreed scheme for coordinating admissions.
