We understand that this is an important decision for a child’s future, so we ensure that we give you the support in making an informed choice. We hold a formal ‘Open Evening’ every year which is communicated via our feeder schools and the local press. In addition, the Senior Leadership team welcome you to visit the school when parent/carers and students can experience the environment during the normal school day. A visit can be arranged via our main reception.
The City of York Council co-ordinate all our admission arrangements and further information can be found by clicking on the link below.
