Joining in year

You may wish for your child(ren) to join the school during the school year or outside the normal Reception application timetable.  Please call the school to check if we have any spaces in the years that you need.

An in-year application can be made at any time of the year as there is no closing date. Your application will be processed no more than half a term (six weeks) in advance of when a place is required. A school place will normally be allocated from the start of the next half term.

To apply you need to complete the online in-year casual application form for NYCC and the SIF which is sent to the school.

More information is available on the NYCC in year application webpage.  This also includes information on what to do if you are planning to move to or do not live in North Yorkshire.
