Education is free

Schools run by the City of York Council are free. Pupils only need to pay for:

  • Their lunch unless they get free school meals or they can bring their own lunch
  • Their school uniform: schools may have a shop and sell good quality used clothes.
  • Some educational visits outside school: if parents can’t afford it, they should talk to the school.
  • Musical instrument tuition
  • Social events at school in the evenings and at weekends.
