The views of parent/carers, schools, neighbouring authorities and other interested parties are being sought during this consultation period. Any comments should be addressed to schoolorganisation@northyorks.gov.uk

Primary School Students

The Local Authority will contact families of Year 5 children in June and provide you with information on how to apply for a secondary school place. In March of Year 6 you will be offered a place at a secondary school. At this point, George Pindar School will contact all families who have been offered a place with them for the following September.

George Pindar School usually feeds from a set catchment area that, as a general guide, includes children who live in areas served by the following schools:

  • Braeburn Primary School
  • Cayton Community Primary School
  • Overdale Community Primary School
  • Seamer & Irton Community Primary School
  • Wheatcroft Community Primary School
