Secondary School Open Evenings

Open evenings are held in the Autumn term each year for prospective pupils to look around each secondary school, with each school holding open evenings on a different evening.

Guide for Parents/School Catchment Areas

Please read the Guide for Parents before applying for a school place, it contains key information on school admissions for parents/carers.  You can also find the Guide to School Catchment Areas online.


Applications can be made until 31 October. Late applications can be made after 31 October, though these may be looked at after other applications.

Applicants will be advised of their allocated school from National Offer Day, usually in March.

Supplementary Information Forms

If you are applying for schools outside of the City of York area or faith schools such as your local Church of England or Roman Catholic Primary or Secondary school, you may also need to provide additional information such as proof of baptism, or fill in a Supplementary Information Form (SIF).

You should check with the school directly if a SIF is required, but you must always apply to your home Local Authority.
