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.
If your in-year application is unsuccessful, you will have the right of appeal against the school’s decision.
Appeals are arranged by North Yorkshire County Council and you can find the appeal form and information at: Appeal for a school place | North Yorkshire County Council
The appeal panel is independent of the school and council and the decision is legally binding. Appeals against a decision for an in-year application can be submitted at any time during the school year.
Where your child currently attends an infant school and they were born between 1 September 2010 and 31 August 2011 they are due to transfer to junior school in September 2018. The online application form to apply for a school place for September 2018 will open no later than 22 September 2017.
