Settle College provides courses for students aged 11 to 18 in Years 7 to 13. The school is a comprehensive community school and students are admitted without their ability being assessed. Places at Settle College will normally be provided for children living within the local area: click here to view a map of our catchment area. We are also happy to accept applications from children outside these areas.

Arrangements for Admission of Students to Year 7

Parents of children who are in Year 6 at primary school will need to submit a formal application for a place at Settle College in Year 7. A Common Application Form is provided by North Yorkshire County Council (NYCC) and enables parents to express their preference for a place at any state funded school. Application deadlines and other key dates are available on the NYCC website (see below link); for late applications or admissions within the school year, please contact the Admissions Team.

The Admissions Authority

Harrogate Education Office co-ordinates the admission process for Settle College. There is extensive information on the NYCC website about school transfer arrangements, admissions policies and also home to school transport. Should you require further admission information, please contact the Admissions Team.
