Please read the Guide for Parents when applying for a school place, as it contains key information on school admissions.  Please note that we expect that an updated Guide for Parent will be published soon by CYC.  You can also find the Guide to School Catchment Areas online.  We would advise you to keep checking on the City of York Council Admissions site to keep updated with key dates throughout the year.

Applications for a place in Reception starting in September 2020 open in September 2019, the deadline for applications is the 15th January 2020 and National Offer Day, when families are informed where their child has been allocated a place, is in April 2019.
