Delivery of orders
To avoid incurring delivery costs to parents, all orders are delivered into school for collection. When the order is dispatched to school you will receive a text message from Schoolshop advising you of this.
The only exception to this is for parents of pupils moving into Year 7 in September who ordered in school at the Year 6 parents evening events. These orders will be dispatched to home addresses free of charge.
If an item is out of stock with Schoolshop, the order may be dispatched in parts or held until all items are available. Again, Schoolshop will send text messages to confirm dispatch and collection from school.
During the summer holidays orders will be dispatched to school on two occasions only. Therefore uniform will only be available for collection from school on the following two days:
Wednesday 15th August between 9am – 3pm
Monday 3rd September between 9am – 3pm
Current YHS students in Aqua will retain their current school tie
Students in Ventus, Ignis & Terra will be provided with a new school tie when we return to school from the summer break.

York High is pleased to announce that next Friday will be a non-uniform day in aid of Children in Need 2017.
The theme this is year is “Go Bright” and so we are expecting to see lots of brightly dressed pupils and staff. Get the neon nail polish out along with those vivid eye shadows.
(Please note, Go Bright does not extend to hair colour - usual school rules apply)
Admissions consultation 2019
The annual admission arrangements consultation started on 16 October 2017 and is open until 1 December 2017. The consultation contains the admission policies, published admission numbers and related documents for schools in the City of York area that detail how admissions applications and decisions will be made for the 2019/20 academic year.
Once again, all admissions authorities in York have agreed to undertake a joint exercise for the benefits of parents/carers, children and other residents, which include:
During the consultation period, we will be sending each school's governing board/local governing committee a survey asking for governors' views on admission arrangements and published admission numbers, as well as any other comments that schools may wish to make regarding the admissions for 2019. The survey should be completed by each school once, following a discussion by governors, and can be accessed here.
We are also consulting with the residents and general public, but are especially seeking the views of parents/carers who have children who will start or change schools in September 2019. These views and comments can be submitted in a public-facing online survey, available at www.surveymonkey.com/r/admissionsconsultation2019, by email to email@example.com, or by post to School Services or any of the schools and academies that are jointly consulting. We request that all schools add this information into their school newsletters and other communication, so that potential consultees are made aware of this consultation.
The groups of children who will be considered under these policies include:
The consultation closes at midnight on Friday 1 December 2017. After consultation, all admission authorities will determine their admission arrangements by Friday 28 February 2018 in line with the school admissions code. All draft policies and documents can be accessed online at www.york.gov.uk/admissionsconsultation and if governors or headteachers wish to discuss these arrangements, please do contact Tom Chamberlain in School Services on 01904 551554 to discuss further.
Are you or is your child an 11-14 year old student in Years 7 or 8 at York High School?
If YES, Teesside University is recruiting 50 students to take part in the Shared Respect Project.
The Shared Respect Project wants to learn what young people know about respecting others and how we can help young people in England to protect themselves. If you are interested in taking part in the project or want more information then please email Jennifer Cassarly at firstname.lastname@example.org
Students who take part in the study will be entered into a drawing for a £40 Amazon gift card.
Next week, York High will be joining other secondary schools across the city to raise awareness about keeping yourself safe when online gaming.
We are working in partnership with the national charity Breck Foundation to run assemblies with all of our Year 9 students. Students will receive a presentation on Wednesday 27th September from Lorin Le Farve who runs the charity.
Lorin Le Farve's son Breck was tragically murdered by an adult who had groomed him through contact on gaming sites.
To support the charities work we will be holding a City Wide ‘No Tech for Breck’ non-uniform day for all students on Friday 29th September at a cost of £1 per student.
In addition to wearing non-uniform all students, teachers and parents are asked to use no social technology for the day including mobiles and tablets.
More information on the excellent work of the Breck Foundation can be found on their website, http://www.breckfoundation.org/
