Admissions to Oaksey School

Parents who wish their child to attend the school are very welcome to visit the school prior to entry and this can be simply arranged by telephoning the School. If this is your child’s first school he or she will be invited to visit the school and spend some time with us before entry on a full-time basis. This will allow your child the opportunity to get to know the school, his teacher and the routine before he starts school. If you are living outside the school’s designated area, parental choice may be exercised providing that the school’s staffing and accommodation allow. A final decision is made by Wiltshire Local Authority. In this case parents are responsible for the transport of their own child to and from the school each day. At 11 years of age, most children transfer to Malmesbury Secondary School following initial visits by the children and close liaison between our school and the Secondary School staff. Some children also transfer to other Secondary Schools and close links are maintained with these schools to ensure the children’s smooth transition to their next stage of education.
