 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.

 You can apply for a place online using the North Yorkshire County Council 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. 

 If the school is unable to offer a place, you may request for your child’s name to be added to the school’s waiting list, which will remain open until the end of December 2021.  Where a place becomes available, this will be offered from the waiting list, based on the oversubscription criteria within the school’s admissions policy


If your in-year application is unsuccessful, you will have the right of appeal against the school’s decision.

Appeals are arranged by North Yorkshire County Council and you can find the appeal form and information at: Appeal for a school place | North Yorkshire County Council
