Year 2 children transferring from Infant School need to complete an application form which can be obtained from Holly Hill Infants for admission into Year 3. If your child is not attending Holly Hill Infant School currently please telephone Reaside Academy for information on how to apply to Year 3.

We are able to admit sixty children each year.

Should we be oversubscribed our admission criteria includes:


  • Children looked after by the Local Authority (children in public care)
  • Children with statements of special educational needs who have been identified as needing to attend specific schools with facilities to accommodate them
  • Children who have siblings already at Reaside
  • Children who live nearest to the school by straight-line measurement


Parents or carers of children who are new to Reaside other than in Year 2 will also need to complete an admission form which must be returned to Reaside as soon as possible.

Enquiries about admissions can be made at the Main Office or by calling 0121 675 7235.

Reaside Academy has spaces to admit children in to Years 3, 4, 5 and 6. Contact office staff for further details and to arrange a visit. You will be most welcome.
