In line with the School Admissions Code 2021, City of York Council hold a coordinated admission consultation on behalf of schools within York and the School Admission Authorities. Where a school is part of a Multi Academy Trust, the Trust is the Admission Authority and not City of York Council.
This year’s Admissions Consultation, for admissions in the 2025-26 academic year, is being jointly held by admissions authorities in the City of York between 2nd October and 12th November 2023. The consultation includes the admission policies and planned number of places available at each school in the year(s) of entry.
All documents can be found in their draft (pre-determined) form at https://www.york.gov.uk/school-admissions/school-admissions-consultation-2025-2026 during the consultation period.
Parents and carers are invited to go to https://www.york.gov.uk/school-admissions/school-admissions-consultation-2025-2026 and complete the parents, carers and public survey online.
Any comments received regarding a Multi Academy Trust policy will be forwarded to the relevant Trust, who are their own admission authority, to consider within their own admission consultation. Please be aware that if there are no proposed changes an admission authority may not be holding a consultation.
Following the consultation, each admission authority will formally set (‘determine’) their admission arrangements for admission in 2025-2026 by 28th February 2024. Determined policies will be on the City of York Council website by 15th March 2024 after which objections can be raised.

Determined policies for the 2023-24 and 2024 – 2025 can be found at School admission policies and reports – City of York Council
