Who do I apply to for a school place for my child?

Although we are an academy, our school still chooses to follow the admissions policies and procedures of the East Riding of Yorkshire Council. This ensures we remain a community school at heart.

Normal school admissions

Normal school admissions are when a child is starting school for the first time, transferring from an infant school to a junior school at the end of year 2, or transferring from a primary school to secondary education at the end of year 6.

In-year applications

In-year applications are when a child is already attending a school and the parents want to move their child from one school to another, for example if the family has moved to a different area.
