All children are required by law to attend school from the start of the term following their fourth birthday. All of our new starters begin school in the September following their fourth birthday.

Admission applications are made to North Yorkshire County Council who then allocate places and advise school and parents in the April prior to starting school. Due to the current pandemic of Coronavirus, we are unable to allow tours of the school. We will be uploading a virtual video and will hold a virtual Open session where prospectus parents can ask questions.

Anyone considering a place at Meadowside Academy will be invited to a virtual tour and virtual Open Evening session to ask any questions. Please call our school office to give your contact details on 01423 866207 or e-mail us at:
