Admissions

In Year Transfers

We have a few places in the school for in-year admissions and will happily discuss this with you. As an academy, we are able to process our own school admissions (apart from Reception September admissions which are centrally allocated through Oxfordshire County Council). Click here for our In Year Transfer Policy.

Please use the form below to book a tour for your family or request application forms from carol.jackman@tyndalecommunityschool.co.uk.

Admissions Process

For all admissions enquiries please contact our Family and Community Liaison Leader, Carol Jackman, by emailing her at carol.jackman@tyndalecommunityschool.co.uk.

We are a two form entry school, with each year group having a maximum of 60 children split between two classes.

We are part of the Oxfordshire Local Authority’s co-ordinated admission arrangements.

Applications for Reception Places for September 2021

Tyndale Community School has 60 places for children in Reception classes each September for children who turn 5 during the subsequent academic year. For places starting in September 2021, applications open in November 2020 for children born on or between 1st September 2016 and 31st August 2017. The deadline for receipt of applications is 15th January 2021. It is important that you make an application by this deadline, but applications are not determined on a first come first served basis.

We are part of the Oxfordshire Local Authority’s co-ordinated admission arrangements and applications for places should be made on the Local Authority Common Application Form, either online or on paper. The Local Authority website contains details of how to apply.

Please see below for how to make a faith-based application.

The first (Form A) must be filled in by you, and the second (Form B) must be filled in by your church leader. Please note that if you wish to apply for a faith-based place these forms are required in addition to applying for a place via the Oxfordshire Local Authority’s co-ordinated admission arrangements as detailed above.
