Admissions Arrangements for 2022-2023
Topcliffe CofE Academy is part of the Elevate Multi Academy Trust.
However, our admission arrangements to school are managed by North Yorkshire County Council in line with the School Admissions Code and Fairness Access Protocols.
This applies to places when children would normally start school (the Reception Year) and to children who may join the school after this time (for example, as the result of a house move).
Published Admissions Number
Our PAN (Published Admissions Number) which is the maximum number the Academy may admit to a single year group is:
Published Admission number for 2021/22: 15
Proposed PAN for 2022/23: 15

How we'll deal with in-year applications from 1st November 2021 until 31 August 2022
Applying for an in-year place
An in-year application can be made at any time of the year. You can only apply up to a term in advance of the date you want the school place. The online form will only allow you to apply for the year group your child should be in according to your child's date of birth. North Yorkshire will start working on applications around six weeks prior to your requested start date and aim to process applications within 20 school days after that.
However, if you apply very early, this may not apply as we can only start processing applications towards the end of term, as follows:
