Admissions Arrangements at Botley School

If you are interested in a place for your child starting school for the first time at Botley School then please contact us to speak to a member of staff or look out for adverts in the local press about our virtual open afternoons. Owing to the current situation of school closures and social distancing, we are not currently offering tours to prospective parents for Reception 2022. However, there is a wealth of information on our website which we hope will be useful, including a Reception New Starters Page.


In order to apply for a place, you will need to complete the application process via the Local Authority, Oxfordshire County Council as they manage all the admissions process on behalf of Botley School.   

Reception entry in 2021 will be open to all children born between 1st September 2017 and 31st August 2018. The number of admissions for the academic year commencing 1st September 2022 is 60.  Applications should be made via Oxfordshire County Council.  The closing date for applications is January 15th 2022. Please contact the Local Authority regarding any late applications.
