As a Voluntary Controlled School, admissions are managed centrally through the local authority.

Children are admitted to Reception in accordance with the policy of North Yorkshire County Council.  Please contact the school office if you require any further information.


All Reception aged children will join the school in the September of the year that they turn 5.  There is only one intake each year. North Yorkshire's Education Department deals with applications for Reception admissions. Providing that you live within North Yorkshire and have registered with a local doctor, you should automatically receive information about the admission process. NYCC prefer on-line applications and the school office can help with this if necessary.
