How to Apply

How do I apply for a ‘normal’ school place for my child?

Applications to start our school for the first time, for the start of Year 7 should be made direct to the Local Authority in which you live by the deadline for applications. Late applications will be considered after those submitted by the deadline, often when there are no places available, so it is important that you apply on-time. If you live in East Riding of Yorkshire Council area, then you can find more information about ‘normal’ admissions processes, deadlines, details of the appeal process and other information at If you live outside the East Riding, you should apply to your ‘home’ Local Authority and not East Riding of Yorkshire Council. The deadline for submission is 31st October.

In Year Applications

Parent/carers wishing to apply for a school place at the school should contact their 'home' local authority to seek advice on in-year school admissions and how to make an application. 

Woldgate school participates in the local co-ordination of admissions applications and Fair Access Protocol.  Woldgate School has requested that for the 2021/22 school year, that the East Riding of Yorkshire School Admissions team co-ordinate in-year admission requests on behalf of the governing body/academy trust as the admission authority for the school.  All applications should be made to the East Riding of Yorkshire School Admissions team who can be contacted at  or by calling 01482 392100. 

Information on school admissions, including the East Riding Co-ordinated In-Year Admissions Scheme and application form/process can be found at 

Residents of other local authority areas should contact their 'home' local authority in the first instance to make an application.  Where the school place applied for is to start immediately, Parent/carers who apply for an in-year school place will receive notification of the outcome of their application within 15 school days of the date the application is received by the East Riding School Admissions team.  Applications made in advance to start at a later date may not receive notification until 15 school days of the date those applications are considered.  All Parent/carers refused a place through the in-year admissions process retain the right of appeal to an Independent Appeal Panel should they request one.  Further advice on the appeal process will be contained in the refusal letter where applicable.
