We are delighted that you are considering Skipton Girls' High School for your child's future education.

As an Academy we are responsible for our own admissions. Skipton Girls’ High School is a selective school, so girls who wish to join the school in Year 7 sit a selection test. If more girls are successful in the test than can be offered places at the school other criteria, including home to school distance are taken into account.

We hold an Open Evening for girls at the end of Year 5 and their parents each year. Tours of the school can be arranged on alternative dates for those who are moving into area, live overseas, or service families. Prospective pupils are also most welcome to visit the school during the school day. If you contact the school we will also be more than happy to answer any questions you may have. Girls can also apply for admission into other years; again please contact the school for advice. 


Parents of candidates who have not been allocated a place have a statutory right of appeal and can obtain an appeal form from school after formal notification of places by the Local Authority. These must be completed and returned to the school by the published deadline.

The Appeals Panel is constituted in accordance with the School Standards and Framework Act 1998 and all members are independent of the school and of the Local Authority. Its decisions will be binding on the Admission Authority and on the parents.


Please email the Admissions Office – FAO Christine Simmonite ( if you have any queries regarding the admissions process for Years 7-11 admissions.
