Admissions

Oxfordshire County Council has now allocated places for The Swan School for Sept 2019. Details of that allocation can be found here. If you applied and were not successful, you may get a place in the second round of allocations in May. 

To do this you have to go on the Continued Interest List. Your letter from the county council will have told you how to do this. 

If you did not apply to The Swan for 2019 but would now like be considered for a place, then you need to fill out an application form, which can be found lower down this page

What happens after 'allocation day'?

On 1st March 2019, parents were informed if their child had been allocated a place at The Swan School, as well as which other existing school they had been allocated by Oxfordshire County Council. Details of that allocation can be found here. Parents now have the opportunity to take up a place at The Swan School or the place at a school allocated by OCC. Details of how to take up the offer of the school place should have been provided by the county council.

Parents and carers of children who do not have a place may request that their child is placed on the Continued Interest List. How to make this request should have been communicated by the county council.

If you did not originally apply for a place at The Swan but would now like to, you can apply online using our secure form. Your application will then be considered as part of the second allocation. Applications must be made by 21st March 2019 and families will be told whether they have a place on 8th May.

Offers of places in the second allocation and positions on the Continued Interest List are determined solely in accordance with the oversubscription criteria in our admissions policy. Where places become vacant they will be allocated to children on the list in accordance with the oversubscription criteria. The list will be reordered in accordance with the oversubscription criteria whenever anyone is added to or leaves the Continued Interest List.

The Swan School uses the Oxfordshire County Council process for independent admissions appeals. Please click here for more details, including important dates.
