How to Apply

Providing we have a space, it is possible to join OIS at any point during the school year, although our main intake is in September for the School.

Step 1 – Make a school enquiry

Contact us for an initial conversation about your child and to check availability in the relevant year group. Alternatively, please complete our enquiry form to register your interest and we will be in contact with you.

Step 2 - Visit

Where possible we encourage families to come and visit us for a personal tour to discuss all aspects of school life and experience the atmosphere. Parents will be given the opportunity to meet the Headteacher and to see the nursery and school during a normal working day. Regular Open Events are held throughout the year. If you are unable to visit the Headteacher would be happy to hold a Skype call to enable you to discuss your child’s education with us.

Step 3 - Register

Complete a registration form and pay a non-returnable £100 registration fee. Registration is an indication of interest and is not a guarantee of a place. Following registration we would request school reports and if possible invite your child to attend a taster day.

The registration form can be downloaded by clicking here.

Step 4 - Offer

Depending on your child’s age, a formal offer of a place is made subject to a positive taster session. Children will be assessed informally within the classroom.  As a non-selective school we do not ask children to sit entrance exams.  For children with a nationality outside of the EU we do require evidence of a suitable visa to entry the school or details about if you wish the school to sponsor a Tier 4 Child application.

Step 5 - Completion

Entry is confirmed when the acceptance documentation is returned with the £300 deposit, which is refundable, less any outstanding items, at the end of your child’s final term at Oaks. If a child is withdrawn after the deposit has been paid, the first term’s fees will be charged in lieu of notice. Further information may be found within our Terms and Conditions.  Once your child in enrolled in the school, we will be in touch with further entry information to ensure a smooth transition into our school community.

For families requiring Tier 4 child sponsorship to apply for a visa we will require advanced payment of the equivalent of two terms of tuition fees is required before Oaks International School will issue a CAS number. If the student fails to secure a visa, this advanced payment will be refunded (less administration costs). If a visa is granted, 50% of the advanced payment will be used to pay for the first term of study and the balance will be kept as payment for the student’s final term of study.
