Coordinated Admissions Schemes
There are 3 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):
Community and Voluntary Controlled schools
These 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 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).

- Archbishop Holgate's School
- Ebor Academy Trust
- Heworth CE School
- Hope Sentamu Learning Trust

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.
