Transfer/moving school

In-year admissions are for those children looking for an Oxfordshire school place during the academic year.

If you are moving to Oxfordshire from an address within England and are applying for a school place in advance of that move then you should apply via your current home authority, who will pass details of your application to the Oxfordshire Admissions Team.

If you are not currently resident in England and your child is moving to Oxfordshire then you should apply to Oxfordshire County Council direct. You can do this in advance of your move.

If you are moving within Oxfordshire you need to indicate your anticipated new address and the proposed date of your move. The County Council may ask for confirmation of your new address.
