The following documents relate to the 2020-2021 school year. Some documents will apply to more than one school, and where this is the case, we clearly state this.

The admissions policies, published admission numbers and related documents for schools in the City of York area concern how admissions applications and decisions will be made for the 2020-2021 school year, and are currently under consultation.

Complete the online consultation survey

The consultation is a joint exercise between all admissions authorities in York, including:

  • the City of York Council on behalf of Community and Voluntary Controlled schools
  • the governing bodies of Voluntary Aided schools
  • the Academy Trusts of (single) Academies
  • the trust board, and local governing committees, of Multi-Academy Trusts

Following consultation, all admission authorities must formally set ('determine') their admission arrangements by 28 February 2019 in line with the School Admissions Code.

Coordinated Admissions Schemes

There are 3 Coordinated Admissions Schemes. Each scheme provides details of how applications for entry into Primary (Reception), Junior (Year 3) and Secondary (Year 7) schools will be coordinated for all schools by the Local Authority, including key dates on coordinating with other local authorities.

Admissions policies

Community and Voluntary Controlled schools

The following admissions policies apply to those schools where the City of York Council is the admissions authority - that is all Community and Voluntary Controlled schools within the City of York area.

Academy and Voluntary Aided schools

There are 15 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. Each policy will make clear to which school(s) it applies.

Please note that academies that have recently converted may not be listed in the documents here, as they are covered by the Community and Voluntary Controlled policy as above that was determined before they became an academy.

Year 12

There are 5 admissions policies for Post-16/Year 12 entry. Each school has a separate admissions policy:
