Admissions

WelcomeWe appreciate that the choice of school for your child is a vital decision for every family.
Glory Farm is an extraordinary school, where adults and children work together in a warm, exciting and stimulating environment. Pupils aged between four and eleven from our richly mixed catchment area are taught in mixed ability classes, working under the care and guidance of their own class teacher We are proud of our learning environment, the equipment and facilities we offer, and the way in which the children use, enjoy and respect them.

We hope our website gives you a clear insight into our school. However, we think the best way to find out about is it to come and meet us! Our head teacher, teachers and children would be delighted to show you around our school – and we’d all be delighted to meet you and your child!

In Oxfordshire, all children enter school in the September of the academic year in which their fifth birthday falls. Our school has the capacity to admit up to 60 age 5 pupils in any year, in addition to the part-time places available for four year olds in our integral nursery. Parents should register their child in the in the Autumn term of their child’s third year.

To register your child, you should complete a registration form, available from the school office or click here to download a copy. Responsibility for the administration of admissions is exercised by the Chief Education Officer of the County Council, in consultation with the school’s governing body. If the school is oversubscribed, places will be allocated using Oxfordshire County Council’s admission criteria. You can find out more about Oxfordshire’s admission process here.

Meetings for parents of new children are arranged to explain details about the school, to answer any queries and to allow teachers and parents to meet together and talk.

Moving to Our School

During the year, children join us from various parts of the town, country and the world. Many of these children are familiar with the process of moving, making new friends, and starting a new school in a different environment. They usually adapt rapidly to a change of scene and bring with them a wealth of experiences and learning, which enhance the life of the school.

To assist your child’s smooth transition from one school to another we ask that parents let us have all available information relating to their child’s academic progress, as soon as possible.
