Admissions

Europa School UK is part of Oxfordshire County Council's admissions round for 2017 and for subsequent years

We admit 84 pupils per year for three classes in Reception. One learning through French and English, the second through German and English and since this year through Spanish and English (for September 2017 there is only Spanish for Reception and Year 1, and year 2 not for the higher classes). For secondary, please scroll down.

Frequently Asked Questions

Before you apply, we request that you consider very carefully the long-term, whole-family commitment involved. We encourage you to look closely at our curriculum and find out more about becoming bilingual. Learning in two languages is a wonderful opportunity but it will be hard work and needs your full commitment.

This year the admin staff is very busy preparing for the opening of the full secondary next year, and we are unable to organise individual visits.

If you would like to apply for a place, the process is handled by Oxfordshire County Council.

If you apply for the school and are initially unsuccessful, you may request that the county council holds your details on a continued interest list and we would then inform you if a place becomes available for your child. Please remember to apply for each subsequent school year around June of each year. For September 2017, applications need to be submitted the week of the 5th of June 2017 to be considered for the first round for September entry: https://www.oxfordshire.gov.uk/cms/content/transferring-or-moving-different-school

 Entry to Secondary in 2017

Since we are an all-through school, there will only be places if pupils leave the school. We do expect a higher turnover than other years though. 

Applications for Yr7 in September 2017 will need to be submitted as an in-year transfer. https://www.oxfordshire.gov.uk/cms/content/transferring-or-moving-different-school

For other year groups with a number of places, we may move the applications forward from June. Please send us an e-mail with the name of your child, date of birth, current year group (please mention secondary!), and preferred second language, so we can contact you if this is the case. 

You can apply here, one term in advance: https://www.oxfordshire.gov.uk/cms/content/transferring-or-moving-different-school

Please read this document that is provided by the government and gives a short explanation on the European Schools and the European Baccalaureate from a British perspective.

Science, English and Philosophy will be taught in English. History and Geography in the second language (French or German in 2017). Another language will be compulory, but taught as a second language. We envisage testing pupils on their second language (German or French) for secondary entry.
