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 set of selection tests. If more girls are successful in the tests than can be offered places at the school other criteria, including home to school distance are taken into account.

We usually hold an Open Evening for girls and their parents at the end of Year 5 each year however this year, in view of the current Covid 19 situation, the date of our Y5 open evening is to be confirmed. Tours of the school can also usually be arranged on alternative dates for those who are moving into area, live overseas, or service families but again, in view of the current COVID 19 situation, we are unable to organise these tours at the moment. 

Admission of students after the start of Year 7

Please refer to Section 4 of our Admissions Policy 2021 for further information. In year tests will be held: 9th October 2020 and 30th April 2021. For further information please contact
