Ebor Academy Trust is the admission authority for the school. We are an academy school and cater for pupils between the ages of 3-11. 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.
You are also very welcome to look round our school at any time of the year. Please contact the school office to make an appointment.
In Year Admissions
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.northyorks.gov.uk/school-admissions
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.northyorks.gov.uk/school-admissions
How to apply for a place at the school
If you are applying for a reception place or entrance into a junior school, all applications are made in advance to your “home” local authority who empties your bins. If this is North Yorkshire, follow this link
The LA website is a composite prospectus for all North Yorkshire 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 North Yorkshire Admissions on:
We recommend choosing five schools to give your child the best chance of getting a place at a school you prefer.
If you live outside of North Yorkshire and want your child to go to a school in North Yorkshire, you must apply to your own local authority and they will inform us of your request.
Going to a school’s nursery does not guarantee your child a place at our school.
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.

Applications to start our school in-year should be made 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.The Local Authority will confirm the outcome of the application in writing within 15 school days.
