At St William of York we can admit up to our standard admission number (i.e maximum of 30 pupils) into our Reception classes each year (total school capacity is 210 pupils).  All applications must be made by completing the Common Application Form for admission to Primary School and return it to the Local Authority.  An additional a supplementary faith form or Baptism Certificate should be completed and returned to school.
