Each year, Driffield School has 336 places available to new Year 7 students. These are allocated in line with the East Riding of Yorkshire Council’s co-ordinated admission scheme.

Applications for Year 7 entry should be made through the local authority responsible for the area where you live, even if you want a place for your child at a school in another local authority’s area.

Places are prioritised for:

  • Children who live in the school’s designated catchment area
  • Children who have a sibling attending the school in Years 7, 8, 9 or 10
  • Children who have attended the school’s named feeder primary schools since the beginning of Year 3
  • Children who live closest to the school
