Europa School UK is part of Oxfordshire County Council's admissions round for 2018 and for subsequent years
Please give the name of your child and his/her date of birth and current class when e-mailing us.
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, this will grow with one year group each year). Please go here for secondary admission information.
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.
The open days are mainly aimed at primary entry, but if you come towards the end, there are opportunities to ask questions about secondary. Children are welcome, but it tends to be a bit long for them, so please bring some toys along. We would appreciate a quick e-mail with the name of your child and how many people will attend. The sessions generally take about 1.5 hours including a tour of the school, but it depends on how many questions there are.
- More open days coming up in the Autumn Term 2018 (between September and January), including a Saturday. You will also be welcome to attend our Christmas Fete in December.
- 04/07 - Answers will be sent out in the next 2 weeks hopefully.
Please fill in an application form on the website of the county council to add your child's name to the waiting list: www.oxfordshire.gov.uk/cms/content/transferring-or-moving-different-school and add your name to our mailing list so we can get quickly in touch about the language if an offer can be made.
If you would like to apply for a place, the process is handled by Oxfordshire County Council. Details are available at www.oxfordshire.gov.uk/cms/content/transferring-or-moving-different-school. Those moving into the area from elsewhere in the UK or from abroad may need our extra guidance with the procedure. Please contact us by e-mail if you have any questions that we may be able to assist you with.
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. https://www.oxfordshire.gov.uk/cms/content/transferring-or-moving-different-school
Applications can usually be submitted from around October of the year before, so around October 2018 on the website of the county council. https://www.oxfordshire.gov.uk/cms/content/admissions-infant-and-primary-schools
More information on the application process for Reception can be found here.
Enquiries: The Europa School UK is its own admissions authority. To confirm whether your child is on our continued interest list or to discuss the prospects of obtaining a place, please contact the school and not Oxfordshire County Council. Please mention in your e-mail the name of your child or names of your children and their dates of births.
Kiddylinguistics: even though the nursery is located on school premises, it is an independant organisation and attendance does not give any priority for entry to the school. Please refer to our admissions policy for information on our oversubscription criteria.
