How to Apply

If your child is in Year 6 at an East Riding of Yorkshire primary school:

Request a place at Woldgate via the East Riding of Yorkshire Council at the council website:

The form should be returned to the East Riding of Yorkshire Council online. It is important that you express a preference for Woldgate on this form, and that you return the form by 31st October. You will be informed in March which secondary school is offering your child a place.

If your child is at a primary school outside of the East Riding of Yorkshire Council:

The application procedure is as above, but please note that different Local Authorities may have different closing dates for secondary school choices. City of York Council works to a similar return date for forms of 31st October; however where your Local Authority asks for an earlier date, please also return any Woldgate forms by the same early date so that we can work in partnership with Local Authority staff.

If your child is at another secondary school, or if you are moving into the area:

Please contact our front office, either by letter, by telephone on 01759 302395, or email at  We will be happy to explain the procedure to you.
