Find out how to apply for a school place in our state-funded Secondary: Years 7 to 11 (S1 to S5)
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.
We will have an open day on Tuesday 5 May at 10.00 for secondary (applications for the following year can be submitted the first week of June, including year 7).
The school currently follows the curriculum of the European Schools. Should Brexit force us to abandon it, we are in full preparations to offer the International Baccalaureate with the support of the Department for Education.
As an all-through school, all secondary applications (apart from 6th form), including those for Year 7, are treated as so-called in-year applications. These can be submitted via the county council in the first week of June. Responses are usually given in July, as the county council needs some time to process all applications for Oxfordshire county council.
Science, Maths, English and Philosophy are taught in English. History and Geography are taught in the second language (French or German). Another language is introduced from Year 7 as a new language.
Please bear in mind that the level of the second language (French or German) is a lot higher than that in most other UK schools, at a near bilingual level.
This document, that is provided by the UK government, gives a short explanation on the European Schools and the European Baccalaureate from a British perspective. The subjects per year group can be found in the Curriculum map.
Year 7 Entry
Generally 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 Yr 7 in September 2019 will need to be submitted as an in-year transfer the first week of June. Having a good knowledge of French or German is not part of the admissions criteria, however, your child will have to work very hard to get to the expected level when admitted.
For year 7, you will need to apply for – and accept – another school place, which will be released when Europa School UK can offer your child a place. Responses are usually sent out around mid-July.
