Applying for a place at St. Christopher's

All schools must have admission arrangements that clearly set out how children will be admitted, including the criteria that will be applied if there are more applications than available places. As an academy we are our own admissions authority which means that we set our own criteria. Although the school determines the criteria it must make every effort to ensure that these arrangements comply with the School Admissions Code 2014 and all relevant legislation, including that on infant class sizes and equal opportunities. The school’s admissions policies can be found here:

At St. Christopher’s we have one main points of intake, namely Reception.


The school uses Oxfordshire County Council to fully coordinate admission arrangements. Parents wishing to apply for a place in Reception must complete the common application form provided by their home local authority. The Local Authorities admissions page can be found here:


For all other year groups and for applications to Reception other than for September entry an in-year application form must be completed and returned to the school. The in-year application form can be found here:
