Guide for Parents/School Catchment Areas
For more information about the secondary school application process, please see the City of York council website.
Please read the Guide for Parents before applying for a school place, it contains key information on school admissions for parents/carers. You can also find the Guide to School Catchment Areas online.
Applicants will be advised of their allocated school from National Offer Day in March.
Supplementary Information Forms
If you are applying for schools outside of the City of York area or faith schools such as your local Church of England or Roman Catholic Primary or Secondary school, you may also need to provide additional information such as proof of baptism, or fill in a Supplementary Information Form (SIF).
You should check with the school directly if a SIF is required, but you must always apply to your home Local Authority.
