School Admissions Consultation 2025 to 2026

The annual School Admission Arrangements Consultation was held from 2 October 2023 to 12 November 2023.

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.

We also publish an annual School Admissions Report each year to the Schools Adjudicator, with information regarding school admissions in the York area.

Admissions into any school are governed by its admission policy which is written, determined and administered by the school's admission authority:

  • for Community and Voluntary Controlled schools, the admission authority is the Local Authority
  • for Voluntary Aided and Academy schools, the admission authority is the Governing Body or Academy Trust of the school

The Guide for Parents includes information on each school, including who is the admission authority. Contact the admission authority for the particular school for any enquiries about admission policies.

Admission policies for applications for future school years have to be formally determined. Determination follows a period of consultation and happens many months before the start of the school year in which the policies apply.

Policies will be made available here when they have been determined or where they are in draft form or under consultation:

We also publish an annual school admissions report each year to the Schools Adjudicator with information regarding school admissions in the York area.
