Admission in other school years

Before a child is admitted to the school in any other year apart from Reception an In-year Transfer Application Form should be completed by the child’s parent or guardian. These can be obtained from the school or downloaded via this link In-year Transfer Form and should be returned to Wiltshire Council when completed.

Secondary Transition

At the end of Year 6, children transfer to secondary school; the majority of our children go to St John’s Marlborough. Applications for a place at secondary school must be made through Wiltshire Council in the Autumn term of Year 6. The deadline for secondary school admissions is midnight on 31 October 2023.

Transfer arrangements for our Year 6 pupils going to St John’s Marlborough are sent to parents during the Spring Term prior to their children starting in September. These arrangements include visits to Oare Primary School by St John’s staff, visits made to St John’s by our Year 6 pupils and Parents’ Evenings when you can visit the school and meet the teachers who will be directly involved with your child.
