Transferring or moving school

How to apply for places at Oxfordshire schools during the academic year (in-year transfers).

How it works

We accept in-year school transfer applications a maximum of one term in advance of the requested start date, based on six terms per academic year.

We aim to process school applications within 15 school days, but there can be delays due to factors such as:

  • waiting for academies to confirm outcomes (some academies have just one admissions meeting per month, and may miss out July altogether)
  • the number of applications causing a backlog
  • staff unavailability - staff attending appeals hearings, attending training courses etc
Please do not call the Admissions Team regarding delays to applications, as this will cause even more delay. We will contact you either by email or post once we have processed your application.
