Secondary Admissions Round

Parents/Carers of children currently in year 6 need to apply for a secondary school place between mid September and 31 October. Applications can be made online at

Places will be allocated on 01 March. Parents/carers have the right of appeal against this decision, and if they wish to do so, should complete an Appeal Request Form.  Please note that appeal requests can not be made until a formal notification that a place has been refused at the preferred school(s) has been made. 

If parents are applying for a foundation place – that is one based on the child’s religion or belief - at a Voluntary Aided school or Academy such as All Saints' RC, Archbishop Holgate's CE or Manor CE schools they may also need to complete an Supplementary Information Form (SIF) and return it directly to that school before 31 October.

Applications for school places should always be made to the local authority in which the child resides, regardless of where the school is located. 

Further advice relating to school admissions can be found on the School Services pages of the CYC website or by consulting the Guide for Parents, Guide to School Catchment Areas, or by calling School Services on  01904 551 554.
