In-Year Applications (1st November 2021 - 31st August 2022)

If you would like to change schools, or if you are moving into the area for example, you can apply for a school transfer, by making an in-year application.

The Red Kite Learning Trust and its Harrogate schools are part of the North Yorkshire County Council In-Year Co-ordination Scheme.


How to apply

Parents and carers may apply at any time for an in-year school place. Application forms are provided and processed by North Yorkshire County Council.


You can apply for a place online using the North Yorkshire County Council in-year application form at: Changing schools and in year applications | North Yorkshire County Council


If you have moved to a new house, please upload evidence of the move with the online application.


Parents and carers will be notified in writing by North Yorkshire County Council of the school’s decision. This will be within 15 school days of your in-year application being received.


If the school is unable to offer a place, you may request for your child’s name to be added to the school’s waiting list, which will remain open until the end of December 2021. Where a place becomes available, this will be offered from the waiting list, based on the oversubscription criteria within the school’s admissions policy. Please see 2021/22 Admissions Policy below.


Appeals Procedure

Parents and carers may appeal against the Trust’s decision not to offer their child a place at the school. The appeals are arranged by North Yorkshire County Council. Appeals submitted for a Year 3 place, for a child to start school at the beginning of the academic year in September 2022, will need to be received by North Yorkshire County Council’s deadline to guarantee being heard before the new school year starts (see below link).
