How to apply

Parents and carers may apply at any time for an in-year school place.  Application forms are provided and processed by North Yorkshire County Council (tel. 01609 780 780).

You can apply for a place online using the local authority in-year application form at:

Changing schools and in year applications | North Yorkshire County Council

If you have moved to a new house, please upload evidence of the move with the online application.

Parents and carers will be notified in writing by North Yorkshire County Council of the school’s decision. This will be within 15 school days of your in-year application being received.

For children starting school in Reception and school is unable to offer a place, your child’s name will automatically be added to the school’s waiting list, which will be kept open until the end of December 2023. Where a place becomes available, this will be offered from the waiting list, based on the oversubscription criteria within the school’s admissions policy

In-year applications (1 September 2022 to 31 August 2023)

If you would like to change schools, or if you are moving into the area for example, you can apply for a school transfer, by making an in-year application.

An in-year application is for the admission of a child to Reception if submitted on or after the first day of the first school term of the admission year; or it is for the admission of a child to any other age group at any time.

Red Kite Learning Trust and its Harrogate schools are part of the North Yorkshire County Council co-ordinated in-year admissions scheme.


Parents and carers may appeal against the Trust’s decision not to offer their child a place at the school. The appeals are arranged by North Yorkshire Council.  Appeals submitted for a Reception place, for a child to start school at the beginning of the academic year in September 2023, will need to be received by North Yorkshire Council’s deadline to guarantee being heard before the new school year starts (see below link).

Appeals against a decision for an in-year application can be submitted at any time during the school year.

The appeal panel is independent of the school and council and the decision is legally binding
