Admissions & Catchment

Admissions

There are two different types of admissions – those to start school at the ‘normal’ time for the start of the Year 7, and those for places in other year groups or at any other time – these are called ‘in-year’ applications for school places.  In-year applications are made for example when a child is already attending one school and the parent/carers wish to move their child from one school to another, and when a family moves to a different area and needs a new school place for their child(ren).

Whilst the admission authority for our school is the academy trust, admissions applications are coordinated by the Local Authority, East Riding of Yorkshire Council.

If you would like to visit the school when considering making an application, please call 01482 881531 to arrange a visit.

How do I apply for a ‘normal’ school place for my child?

Applications to start our school for the first time, for the start of Year 7 should be made direct to the Local Authority in which you live by the deadline for applications.  Late applications will be considered after those submitted by the deadline, often when there are no places available so it is important that you apply on-time.  If you live in the East Riding of Yorkshire Council area, then you can find more information about ‘normal’ admissions processes, deadlines, details of the appeal process and other information at www.eastriding.gov.uk/apply-for-a-school-place.  If you live outside the East Riding, you should apply to your ‘home’ Local Authority and not East Riding of Yorkshire Council.

There is no supplementary information form when applying for a place at our school.

To access the admissions process please log into: Citizen Portal – Sign in (eastriding.gov.uk)

The closing date for secondary applications is 31 October 2023. Once this date has passed, please contact the School Admissions team. schooladmissions@eastriding.gov.uk

 

How do I apply for an ‘in-year’ school place for my child?

Although we are an academy, and the admissions authority for the school is the academy trust we have formally requested that applications for school places are made through the local authority’s co-ordinated admissions scheme for in-year applications.  Applications to start our school in-year should be made direct to the Local Authority no earlier than one term before the place is required, and it is recommended that you apply no later than a period of twenty school days, that is four weeks in term time, before you wish for the place to be available for your child.  Applications are considered in the order that they have been received, for example if there is one space available in a year group, the parent/carer who applied for their place first will likely be allocated the place for their child.  Proof of residence may be required before places can be allocated, and the school fully adheres to the East Riding Fair Access Protocol.  Applicants will be informed of the outcome of their application as soon as is possible, though this is commonly ten school days after an application has been received, but may be later in certain circumstances.

If you live in East Riding of Yorkshire Council area, then you can find more information about ‘in-year’ admissions processes, and details of the co-ordinated admissions scheme in this document. You can apply for a ‘in-year’ place for your child using this application form.  If you live outside the East Riding, you should apply to your ‘home’ Local Authority and not East Riding of Yorkshire Council.

There is no supplementary information form when applying for a place at our school.

Who makes decisions on school admissions applications?

As we are an academy the admissions authority for the school is the academy trust.  It is the admission authority, and not the Local Authority who determines whether there is an available place based upon the capacity of the class/year group and the number of pupils already on roll.

Who should I contact with queries on school admissions?

You can contact the East Riding School Admissions Team by email at schooladmissions@eastriding.gov.uk, by writing to School Admissions Team, East Riding of Yorkshire Council, County Hall, Beverley, HU17 9BA.  You can also call 01482 392100 in school hours.

Where can I find information regarding appeals?

Applicants refused a place at a school for their child normally have the right to appeal against the decision to refuse admission. You can find information on how to do this by visiting the local authority website.

Appeals for ‘in-year’ school admission requests are normally held within 30 school days of the date your appeal is received. You will be notified of the date of your appeal no later than ten school days before the appeal is due to take place.

Appeals for entry into Reception or Year 7 to start primary or secondary school for the first time – what are called ‘normal’ admission requests – are usually held in the summer term after parent/carers have been notified of the refusal of a school place, commonly in June and July.

Starting school in September 2023 – For applications to start a secondary school for the first time in September 2023, appeal forms should be submitted by parent/carers by 5 May 2023 and appeals are planned to be held between Monday 5 June and Friday 7 July.

Starting school in September 2024 – For applications to start a secondary school for the first time in September 2024, appeal forms should be submitted by parent/carers by 26 April 2024 and appeals are planned to be held between Wednesday 15 May and Friday 28 June
