Admissions Policies

As an academy, St Peter's School is its own admission authority. This means that the Governing Body set the admission criteria and arranges admission appeals.  

For children starting school in Reception in September, applications should be made to Oxfordshire County Council Admissions by completing a Common Admissions Preference Form (CAPF) either in paper form or electronically.

The closing date for applications and the date for the offer of places will be in accordance with the co-ordinated admissions scheme, details of which will be common to all schools in the Local Authority (LA) area. The Oxfordshire County Council admissions web site can be found below.

All admissions at other points in the year to Reception, or to any other year group are considered to be in-year admissions.

In-year admissions will be considered in accordance with the criteria as set out in the relevant admissions policy. The school administers its own In-Year Admissions process. If you wish to make an application for an in-year place at St Peter's School please do so using the form which can be found below:
