Admissions Consultation

The Hope Sentamu Learning Trust (HSLT) Trust Board have determined their admissions arrangements for 2023 – 2024.

Following determination of arrangements, any objections to those arrangements must be made to the Schools Adjudicator. Objections to admission arrangements must be referred to the Schools Adjudicator by 15th May in the determination year.

Please follow this link to object to the schools adjudicator regarding a school’s admission arrangements: https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/objection-to-school-admission-arrangements

Email: osa.team@schoolsadjudicator.gov.uk
Post: OSA, Bishopsgate House, Feethams, Darlington, DL1 5QE

You can object to the schools adjudicator because you consider a school’s admission arrangements:

If your concerns are about the admission arrangements for a year other than the 2023 to 2024 academic year, make it clear to which year’s arrangements you are referring.

 

Primary School Students

The Local Authority will contact families of Year 5 children in June and provide you with information on how to apply for a secondary school place. In March of Year 6 you will be offered a place at a secondary school. At this point, Graham School will contact all families who have been offered a place with them for the following September.

Graham School usually feeds from a set catchment area that, as a general guide, includes children who live in areas served by the following schools:

  • East Ayton
  • Friarage
  • Gladstone Road
  • Hinderwell
  • St Martin’s
  • Wheatcroft

And parts of the catchment areas of:

  • Barrowcliff
  • Newby & Scalby
  • Northstead

Currently, as primary school numbers in these areas are relatively low, Graham School also has places available for children who live outside of the normal catchment area. Graham School currently also has students who transferred from the following primary schools:

  • Bempton
  • Braeburn
  • Filey Juniors
  • Hackness
  • Hertford Vale
  • Lindhead
  • Overdale
  • Seamer & Irton
  • Sherburn
  • St George’s
  • St Peter’s
  • Wykeham
