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.
