Important Notice

Consultation on changing our Planned Admission Number (PAN)

Proposal: Meden School has now begun the formal process to reduce the number of places from September 2018 and wishes to consult with you on this proposal. The Torch Academy Gateway Trust is proposing to reduce the Pupil Admission Number (PAN) from the current 240 per year group to 160 pupils per year group.

Reasons for the proposed change:

The following factors have been taken into account:

  • Pupil numbers in our catchment area have fallen significantly since the current PAN was set. 130 students currently join Meden School each year and this is forecast to remain constant.
  • It will make financial planning much easier.
  • Reduced numbers will enable us to know our students even better, thus facilitating continuing school improvement.
  • Site and resources management will be more effective and suffer less wear and tear.

If you have any comments you wish to make in respect of this proposal could you please forward them to Mr.T.Gibbon at the school address, or by email to or by telephone on 01623 843 517

Current Arrangements

Meden School follows the Nottinghamshire County Council Admissions Arrangements.

We organise Primary School and College Open Evenings, when prospective parents and pupils have an opportunity to visit the school. We are also always pleased to show parents and prospective parents around the school during the working day, and to answer any questions you may have. For an appointment, please contact the school office.

Do you attend one of the Meden family of schools?

The following schools are our linked schools:

  • Birklands Primary School
  • Eastlands Primary School
  • Cuckney C of E Primary School
  • Church Vale Primary School
  • Sherwood

If your child attends one of these schools, we will make all the necessary arrangements for induction. These will include:

  • Pre-visits for children to experience lessons at Meden school during the summer term before transfer
  • Welcome evenings to provide an introduction to tutors and bases, also during the summer term
  • A Year 7 parents evening in the term after admission to strengthen the links with tutors and report on how you child has settled in

If you are moving to the area

If you expect to move house, please make contact well in advance. You are welcome to look around the school. We, in turn, will need to request records and meet with you.

If you attend a school outside the Meden School family

We also admit pupils from other primary schools and into the College, provided places are available.
