How to apply

The admissions process

Admissions to Tower Hill Primary School are handled by Oxfordshire County Council.

Parents of children born between September 1st 2017 and August 31st 2018 (inclusive) need to apply for a Reception year place for September 2022.

Parents and carers should list three schools, putting their favourite at number one.

It is advised that a child’s catchment school is among the three schools chosen by parents and carers, but this is not a requirement.

Applications can be made using a paper form, copies of which are available from the school office.

Most applications are made online. You can do it online here:

Transfers from other schools

Guidance on transferring to Tower Hill is available from the school office. Oxfordshire County Council explains how the transfer process works below:

Oxfordshire Transfers


Parents need to express an interest in a nursery place directly to the school office.

The oversubscription criteria and the catchment area are the same as for the school. However, entitlement to free provision (15 or 30 hours per week) is subject to Oxfordshire County Council’s guidelines.

If there is availability, parents will also be able to purchase additional hours to their free entitlement.
