• Welcome to Cowling

We would love to show you around our school. Please ring the School Office on 01535 632198 or email to make an appointment. 

The interim headteacher, Mrs Dawson, will be very happy to show you around. We do not offer one set day but prefer to offer individual appointments enabling families to ask questions specific to their child and to see our school in action.

If you decide Cowling School is the perfect match for your child please apply through North Yorkshire Admissions - please see the link below.

Children are admitted to Reception in accordance with the policy of North Yorkshire County Council. Visits to the school are welcomed. Please contact the school office.


All Reception aged children will join the school from September.

As a community school, North Yorkshire's Education Department deals with applications for Reception admissions. Providing that you live within North Yorkshire, have registered with a local doctor, you should automatically receive information about the admission process. NYCC prefer on-line applications and the school office can help with this if necessary. 


Once we know your child has been offered a place at Cowling Primary, you will receive a letter inviting you to an introductory evening. This is arranged during the term before your child starts Reception . At the meeting you will find out more about school routines and meet other new parents and see your child's classroom. We invite your child into school for two half -day sessions enabling them to experience some of the activities they will enjoy when they join our school. We also invite them to stay for lunch on one of the visit days so they can experience the dinner hall.
