We have clear procedures in place to enrol pupils as we believe that the combination of taster mornings/days, meeting the Headteacher, and a report from your child's present school gives us the best possible way to assess their suitability and future needs.
To start the process you will need to complete the 'Application for Admission' form and send it to us together with the £50.00 registration fee. Download an application form here. It is never too early to register and if places are oversubscribed, the date of registration may be taken into account.
Meet the Head
You are very welcome to visit us at any mutually convenient time to see the school and meet with the Headteacher, Helen Todd– please just get in touch. Once we have received a formal Application for Admission, if you have not already visited, we will arrange a meeting with Helen Todd and for you to look around the school. This is our opportunity to find out what interests your child has, and how Bootham Junior School can bring out the best in him or her. It is also a good time for you to ask any questions and to meet other pupils and staff.
The School Report
If your son or daughter is already at school, excluding Nursery classes, we will ask for a report from your child's present school to make sure all his or her needs can be catered for.
All prospective pupils are invited to spend a normal day in school, working alongside their future classmates. This is to allow both your son or daughter and their new teacher to get to know each other and helps us to ensure your child will thrive here. We don't usually ask children below Year 5 entry to sit a test, rather they join in normal lessons and activities.
