Guide to school catchment areas

The Guide to School Catchment Areas contains maps and information on the catchment areas for York schools. We publish the guide to inform parent/carers of their "catchment school" for the purposes of school admissions.

Catchment areas do not change annually, but changes may be made to the guide to reflect:

  • new build housing developments
  • new streets
  • improved maps
  • required changes following the closure of any schools

Residence in a particular catchment area does not guarantee the allocation of a school place at your catchment school, as this will depend upon the number of available places at the preferred school(s), as well as you home address.

We advise that prior to making an application, parent or carers consult the Guide to School Catchment Areas, as well as the Guide for Parents as it contains important advice and information. However, please always check specific addresses with us.

Catchment area maps

As well as being included in the Guide to School Catchment Areas, you can view maps of school catchment areas and your address.
