Admissions 

In accordance with our statutory duty under The School Admissions (Admission Arrangements and co-ordination of Admission Arrangements) (England) Regulation 2012.  North Yorkshire County Council is consulting on proposed school admission arrangements for community and voluntary controlled schools 2024/2025.  This consultation will run from 20 October 2022 until 9 December 2022.

Documents can be found at: https://www.northyorks.gov.uk/proposed-north-yorkshire-county-council-co-ordinated-admission-arrangements

The views of parent/carers, schools, neighbouring authorities and other interested parties are being sought during this consultation period. Any comments should be addressed to schoolorganisation@northyorks.gov.uk

 

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

In-year admissions

The right to appeal

By law, if your child is refused a place at your preferred school, you have the right to appeal against that decision to an independent panel.

Attached is the letter detailing arrangements for Year 10 Parent's Evening on 1st December. Year 10 is a crucial year for our students so we would encourage as many parents as possible to attend so we can work together to achieve the best outcomes for them. #TeamGraham pic.twitter.com/7AYd…
