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 on 01666 577221. If this is your child’s first school they 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, their teacher and the routines before they start. 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, many of our pupils transfer to Malmesbury Secondary School, however, we also have pupils transferring to schools in Cirencester, Tetbury, Stroud and beyond. Oaksey School has close links with Malmesbury Secondary and many of the other schools to ensure a smooth transition.
