As we are a community school, Reception places at Meridian are decided by the schools admissions team and you need to apply via the East Sussex website. We currently have 60 places available for September, but this may rise to 90 places depending on pupil numbers in Peacehaven. Exact numbers will be available at the end of February 2018.
If you are new to the area or wish to move your child to a new school, then you can request an in-year admission. An in-year admission is the admission of a child to a school which takes place outside of the normal entry times. You can apply direct to schools and if there is a place available, the headteacher will usually arrange a start date with you. You can also apply online.
Parents and carers who would like to discuss the school with the Headteacher are invited to make an appointment via the school office to visit the school.
Important dates for September 2018 Admissions
