Our school staff are always happy to help with admissions and a warm welcome awaits when you come to look round and meet us.


We have a 60 place nursery setting offering 30 spaces per morning session and 30 spaces per Afternoon session. 

The universal 15 hour funding can be taken over 5 Morning sessions, 5 Afternoon sessions or 2 and a ½ days. NB: The latter option will incur a lunchtime session charge. The Extended 30 hour entitlement is offered over 4 and a ½ days with the option of paying for the 10th session if it is required. Please refer to the charging policy for more information regarding prices.   

Allocated sessions using the extended entitlement will need to be reconfirmed every term, you must apply via HMRC and bring  your unique 11 digit code to the school office to secure your child's 30 hours space. Please see the childcare choices website for more information regarding eligibility and guidance on how to claim this extended funding. 

The Nursery Charging and Admissions policy can be found in the Policies section of our website.

You can contact the school office to add your child to the expression of interest list and we will then contact you near to the time your child is eligible to take up their place to make arrangements for visits and familiarisation sessions. We allocate places according to our admission policy. Sessions may be limited depending on availability.

We follow the LA admissions guidelines. The LA sets the number of admissions each year, with the approval of the governing body. Our published admission number (PAN) for September 2017 is 65 pupils. Where the number of children applying to start exceeds this limit, places are allocated in accordance with the LA criteria, as set out in their admissions documents. All admissions to Holy Trinity CE Infant School have to be approved by Harrogate Education Office prior to the child starting. Parents will need to complete a preference form for children seeking entry into reception.

When a child applies to join the school during the year, parents are welcome to come and visit us and meet with the Headteacher. We will then be able to answer any questions you may have.

 Holy Trinity CE Junior School

Pupils transfer from Holy Trinity Infant School at the age of seven. Children in Year 2 visit the Junior School during the summer term and our Year 3 staff also visit the Infant School. Parents of new children are invited to an evening meeting where they can find out about the school and meet staff.

New pupils are admitted according to the LA’s admissions policy. Children living in the school’s catchment area are normally offered a place at the school. Applications from parents living out of the catchment area should be made to the Harrogate Education Office - link below. The current planned admissions number is 67 children per year group. Prospective parents are welcome to look around the school and should contact the school office to make an appointment. Parents wishing to enrol their children should complete an admission form and parental preference form - link below.

Most pupils transfer from Holy Trinity CE Junior School to the two Ripon secondary schools – Ripon Grammar School and Outwood Academy – although some parents opt to send their children to schools in neighbouring towns.   Parents must complete a preference form listing their choice of secondary schools.
