Ebor Academy Trust is the admission authority for the school. We are an academy school and cater for pupils between the ages of 4-11. The school’s admission authority sets the admission policy every year and works with the Local Authority’s Admissions Unit who coordinate places at all schools in the local authority.
Ebor Academy Trust participates in the Local Authority’s Co-ordinated Admission Scheme for in-year admissions. If parents/carers wish to apply for a school place, applications can be made at https://www.york.gov.uk/SchoolAdmissions via the ParentPortal. The Local Authority will confirm the outcome of the application in writing within 15 school days. If the application is refused, the Local Authority will advise on the statutory appeal procedure. Details of the Co-ordinated Admission Scheme and how in-year applications are managed are available at https://www.york.gov.uk/SchoolAdmissions. “

How to apply for a place at the school
If you are applying for a reception place, all applications are made in advance to your “home” local authority who empties your bins. If this is York, go to https://www.york.gov.uk/guide-parents-1/apply-school-place
The LA website is a composite prospectus for all York schools and includes information about:
- all of the steps you need to go through to make an application
- the key dates
- an explanation about how places are offered if there are more applications than spaces (oversubscribed)
- the online application portal – apply online and you’ll be sent your offer by email
- a summary of each school’s individual admission policy criteria
- Information about applying under a specific admission criteria (such as your child being previously looked after). It is really important to ensure you submit all supporting evidence by the deadline to show you meet any such criteria.
For help with your application, contact York admissions on:
Telephone: 01904 551554
We recommend choosing at least 3 schools to give your child the best chance of getting a place at a school you prefer.
If you live outside York and want your child to go to a school in York, you must apply to your own local authority and they will inform us of your request.
Late applications may be considered after those submitted by the deadline, often when there are no places available so it is important that you apply on-time.
