Cutteslowe Primary School

Applying for a place

How the process works

All admissions to Cutteslowe Primary School are handled by Oxfordshire County Council.

Parents and carers seeking a place in Reception should pick three schools when applying, 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 online HERE.

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

We can support parents and carers through the application process. Please contact the office if you need help.

All the relevant details about the primary school admission process can be found HERE.


Key dates

The window for people seeking a Reception place in September 2023 opened at the start of November 2022.

The deadline for applications is January 15th 2023.

Parents and carers find out on April 17th 2023 if their application to Cutteslowe has been successful.


Late applications

We can support parents and carers through the application process for Reception after the January 15th deadline. Please contact the office if you need help.



Details of how to appeal if you are not happy with the outcome of the admissions process are available HERE.


In-year transfers

If your child is already attending primary school, but you are moving to the area or interested in a place at Cutteslowe, you will need to complete an Oxfordshire County Council in-year-transfer form HERE


Priority places at The Cherwell School

The Cherwell School and Cutteslowe Primary School are both part of River Learning Trust and work in close partnership.

In recognition of this partnership, The Cherwell School's admissions policy gives priority to children who live in The Cherwell's catchment area and are also enrolled at Cutteslowe Primary School.

This only applies to Year 7 admissions.
