Coordinated Admission Consultation for 2023-2024 school year

Coordinated Admission Consultation

In line with the School Admissions Code 2021,We hold a coordinated admission consultation on behalf of schools within York and the School Admission Authorities. The consultation was held between Monday 4 October to Sunday 14 November. The consultation is now closed.

The draft admissions policies, published admission numbers and related documents for schools in the City of York area advise how admissions applications and decisions will be made for the 2023 to 2024 school year.

Some draft documents will apply to more than one school where the policy applies to Community and Voluntary Controlled schools and schools within a Multi Academy Trust. The schools to which the policy applies are listed in the policy.

Feedback provided, through the admission consultation survey, regarding schools where City of York Council are the Admission Authority will be considered by City of York Council. Feedback provided, through the admission consultation survey, regarding schools which are part of a Multi Academy Trust, where the Trust is the Admission Authority, will be passed to the Trust to be considered.

Coordinated Admissions Schemes

There are 3 draft Coordinated Admissions Schemes.

Each Scheme explains how the Local Authority will coordinate applications for entry into Reception, Year 3 and Year 7 for all schools (including key dates on coordinating with other local authorities):

Admissions policies

Community and Voluntary Controlled schools

These draft admissions policies apply to Community and Voluntary Controlled (CVC) schools within the City of York area (that is, where the City of York Council is the admissions authority):

Note: A policy is not required for Year 3 this year, as we don't currently have any CVC junior schools.

Academy and Voluntary Aided schools

These are the draft admissions policies for Academy or Voluntary Aided Schools.

Some schools have their own admissions policy, and some share a policy - for example, non-church schools within the same Academy trust (it's apparent from each policy which school(s) are covered).

Note: Recently converted academies may not be listed here, as they'll be covered by the Community and Voluntary Controlled policy in place before they became an academy.

Supplementary Information Forms

You'll require a Supplementary Information Form (SIF) when you need to apply for a specific type of school place, for example:

  • a place in a ballot
  • on the grounds of religion or belief

If the Supplementary Information Form is not listed please contact the school directly.

Year 12

There are 5 draft admissions policies for Post-16/Year 12 entry.

Each school has a separate admissions policy:

Published Admission Numbers
