Applying for a place at Bootham

Choosing a school for your child can be a difficult and lengthy process. Each child is unique and finding somewhere where you know they are going to be happy and successful takes careful consideration and time.

We hope our website and films give you a taste of life at Bootham School. However, the best way to decide if we are right for your child is to come and meet us.

We hold regular open mornings when you can come and see the school in action or if you prefer you can come for a private visit which we will happily arrange for you.

Please note that places are extremely limited so early application is advised.

Jenny Daly, our Registrar, and our Admissions Assistant, Helen Armstrong, deal with all the day-to- day issues of the entrance procedure. Please contact them for more information by emailing admissions@boothamschool.com or calling 01904 623261.
