Woodthorpe Primary School

Welcome toWoodthorpe Primary School


Although part of a Multi-Academy Trusty, we continue to follow the City of York Admissions Policy and the admissions process is managed by the City or York Council’s Admissions Department. This means that we normally take children who live in the school’s catchment area.  There may occasionally be times when this leaves the school with spare places – under these circumstances it may be possible for pupils who live outside the catchment area to gain a place. In the event of the school being over-subscribed, the City of York Council will allocate places according to its Admission criteria (see CYC Admissions Booklet).  Parents who are unable to obtain a place for their child have the right to an independent appeal.
