Year 7 September Intake

The school has a published admission number (PAN) of 270 students and the priorities for September Year 7 admissions are:

  1. Looked after children
  2. Children who live in the Wolfreton catchment area
  3. Children who have a brother or sister already attending Wolfreton
  4. Children who have attended one of our feeder primary schools for the whole of Key Stage 2 (i.e. since Year 3 in primary school)
  5. Geographical distance from the school

The five main feeder primary schools for Wolfreton are:

  • Anlaby Acre Heads
  • Anlaby
  • Kirk Ella St Andrews
  • Springhead
  • Willerby Carr Lane

This is only a brief summary of the admission criteria, full details of which are available in the East Riding of Yorkshire Council’s Admission Booklet, and can be found on the website

How do I apply for a place at Wolfreton in Year 7?

The school’s admission arrangements follow the guidance contained in the East Riding of Yorkshire Schools guide for parents. All parents must apply to their home authority.

East Riding residents may apply on line on using the quick link ‘Apply for a School Place’. Those East Riding parents who choose not to apply on line will receive an application form from the Authority.

Visiting Arrangements

An open evening is held in the Autumn term every year for prospective parents and their children to tour the school and meet with students and staff. The date of the open evening is advertised in advance of the event. Parents are welcome to visit at alternative times. Please contact the main school reception to arrange a visit.


If your child is not awarded a place at Wolfreton because the school is full in Year 7, you can appeal against this decision by writing to Schools’ Admissions Team, County Hall, Beverley, HU17 9BA. Please note that the school is NOT responsible for admissions in Year 7 – that is the responsibility of the East Riding Local Authority.

In-Year Admissions

As a Local Authority school, applications for in-year admissions are also managed by the Schools’ Admissions Team, County Hall, Beverley, HU17 9BA. The Admissions Team can be contacted on 01482 887700. Parents may apply on line at using the quick link ‘Apply for a School Place’.
