ODST is committed to ensuring admissions policies are inclusive and serve their local communities effectively. 

ODST acts as the admissions authority for all our schools, and our close partnership with Oxford Diocesan Board of Education (ODBE) enables us to give admissions advice and support to schools. ODBE also runs regular training sessions for schools to update and inform them about admission and appeals policy and practice.

How to apply for a place in an ODST school

Applications for admissions to ODST schools for Reception year (or Year 3 in junior schools) are made through the standard school admissions process, via local authorities. For admission during the school year or in other year groups please contact the school you wish to apply for.
