Admission Arrangements

How do I apply for a place at Fulford School for my child?

The South York Multi-Academy Trust is the admissions authority for Fulford School and applications are processed by the admissions team at the City of York Council.  Details of the admissions policies that apply  for all York schools can be found here and you can find out more about secondary school applications in York on the City of York Website.  Fulford School’s full Admissions Policy for the current year can be found on our Policies Page.

If your child is moving schools either during the school year or for the start of a new school year, then you will need to make an in-year application. Examples of this include when moving house or requesting to move your child from one school to another within York.

Applications for Year 12 or 13, also known as sixth form, should be made directly to the school – click here to find out more about applying to the sixth form at Fulford School.
