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). For secondary, please scroll down.
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.
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
Science, English and Philosophy will be taught in English. History and Geography in the second language (French or German in 2018). Another language will be compulory, but taught as a second language.
- Year 7: we will have some places, as we increase the class size from 28 to 30 and expect a higher turnover than other year groups. Applications for secondary, including Yr7 in September 2018 will need to be submitted as an in-year transfer https://www.oxfordshire.gov.uk/cms/content/transferring-or-moving-different-school
- We still have some places available in Years 7, 8 and Year 11 for 2017-2018, please follow the link below to apply. For applications for the 6th form, please contact the school directly. There are places, but there are some entry requirements.
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. And the curriculum map can be found here.
Applications can usually be submitted from around October of the year before, so around October 2017 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.

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.
