Admissions into any school are governed by its admission policy which is written, determined and administered by the school's admissions authority. For Community and Voluntary Controlled schools, the admissions authority is the Local Authority. For Academy schools the admission authority is the Governing Body or Academy Trust of the school. For more information please read through the City of York Council School Admission Polices and Reports
For parents and carers who have children starting or changing junior school please read this useful Guide for Parents.
