Our school staff are always happy to help with admissions and a warm welcome awaits when you come to look round and meet us. Please contact the school office if you would like to make an appointment to visit.

We follow the Local Authority (LA) admissions guidelines. The LA sets the number of admissions each year, with the approval of the governing body. Our published admission number (PAN) is currently 60 pupils. Where the number of children applying to start exceeds this limit, places are allocated in accordance with the LA criteria, as set out in their admissions documents. All admissions to The Federation of Holy Trinity Church of England  Schools have to be approved by Harrogate Education Office prior to the child starting.

Key Stage 2

At the end of Year 2, children transfer from the Infant site to the Junior site. As we are officially classed as 2 schools, children moving into Year 3 will need to apply for a place using the Local Authority admissions process - click here. Children moving into Year 3 participate in transition activities in the summer term of Year 2 to familiarise themselves with the building and staff.

Most pupils transfer from Federation of Holy Trinity Church of England Schools, Key stage 2 to the two Ripon secondary schools – Ripon Grammar School and Outwood Academy – although some parents opt to send their children to schools in neighbouring towns. Parents must complete a preference form listing their choice of secondary schools.
