Applying for a Primary Place
Hookstone Chase Primary School has one intake in September, each year for children whose fifth birthday falls between 1 September and 31 August inclusive.
(Please note the intake will be staggered over the first 2 weeks to allow for the children to adjust and settle. In addition some parents may feel their child would benefit from mornings-only for the first term. Individual needs may be catered for in this way at the discretion of the school, following discussions with the Head Teacher and Foundation Stage Leader.)
We also accept children mid-year who are moving into the area or changing school, dependant on current numbers and spaces within year groups.
Any parents wishing to consider Hookstone Chase are encouraged to contact the school on 01423-886026 or by email: firstname.lastname@example.org arrange to visit and look around.
Applications should then be made by completing a preference form which is available online at onlineadmissions.northyorks.gov.uk/Enrol/Website . All admissions to school must be authorised by the Local Authority. For September entry into Reception Class, detailed guidance can be found on the North Yorkshire County Council website: www.northyorks.gov.uk/article/23544
Parents of Reception aged children are notified by the Local Authority towards the end of the previous April to confirm the allocation of a place for September.
Admissions for a Secondary Place
Children in Year 6 need to apply for a place at secondary school. Places are not automatically allocated. It is highly recommended that you visit the schools you and your child are interested in before making your selection. Whilst Hookstone Chase does not feed into any one individual or main secondary school, in the past children have mainly moved on to King James's School, Knaresborough and Harrogate High School, with others attending Rossett School, St Aidan's C of E High School, St John Fisher Catholic High School or Harrogate Grammar School.
Choices and admissions forms need to be completed electronically usually by the end of October, for a start date of the following September. Children in Year 5 receive details of this procedure. online application form can be found here: onlineadmissions.northyorks.gov.uk/Enrol/Website
