If you are interested in gaining a place at the school for your son, please do make contact with us to arrange a visit and tour; we will be very pleased to show you the school in action during a normal working day. Visit the Contact Us page for ways to get in touch.
To reserve a place for your son at St Birinus School, it is important to follow these procedures:
If your son is under the age of 11, you will need to apply for a place via Oxfordshire County Council. You can do this either by visiting their website www.oxfordshire.gov.uk/secondaryadmissions or by completing a Common Application Form (CAF) from the back of the Moving On Booklet and posting to the address below. If you do not have a Moving On booklet please contact the School Admissions Team (contact details below) for a copy.
Please do not apply both online and on paper as this may delay the processing of the application.

We hold an Open Evening and series of Open Mornings every year in September/October to which all prospective families are welcome to attend. We also hold an evening, with www.didcotgirls.oxon.sch.uk/, for potential applicants into our mixed sixth form in November. Information about all of these events is clearly signed on our website well in advance of the events themselves.
