Guide for Parents

We recommend that all parents/carers consult City of York Council’s Guide for Parents before applying for a school place, as it contains key information on school admissions.

Sibling links

A ‘sibling link’ is where your preference for a school place is considered with a higher priority than applicants who don’t have siblings attending the school. For junior schools, this includes any brothers or sisters (including ‘half’ and ‘step’ brothers or sisters) living in the same house as their primary place of residence, who attend the preferred junior school in Years 3 to 5 at the time of application.

Transition into Year 7

Applications for secondary school places can be submitted from 12 September 2023 until the national deadline on 31 October 2023.

If you applied online the result of your application will be available online on Wednesday 1 March 2024. Those that didn’t apply online will receive a letter a few days later with the result of the application.

Further information

You can find out more about applying for a secondary school place on the City of York Council’s website.
