At what age do pupils join Bloxham School?

Children can join Bloxham School at age 11, 13 and 16. However, we do also welcome pupils at other ages if there are spaces available.

How can I visit the school?

Open events are held throughout the academic year, with whole school open mornings in October and March. We welcome individual tours where families can visit the site and speak with Admissions, House and Senior staff.

Request a visit here or find out more information about our open events here.

How do I register my child?

Please complete the registration document, available to download here.

You will then need to pay a non-refundable registration fee of £200. This will reserve a provisional place for your child, subject to the outcome of their assessment. Methods of payment are detailed within the registration form.

When do I need to register my child?

Early registration is recommended. The deadline for registrations and scholarship applications is dependent on which year your child is applying for. Click here to view the deadlines for the coming year.

Do you have any specific admissions criteria that may give priority to children who live close to the school or who follow the Christian faith?

There are no additional criteria within our Admissions policy. We consider applicants regardless of their address or religious background.

What is the difference between a day and day boarding place?

Day pupils will attend school from 8.15am to 6.00pm with no boarding catered for. Lower School pupils join Exham House and Senior day pupils join Merton House.

Day boarders have two nights’ boarding included within their fees. There is also the opportunity Monday to Friday to stay without boarding until 8.15pm (Lower School)/9pm (Senior School) with supper, supervised prep and House activities.

Is there a minibus route available for pupils to travel to and from school?

Where possible our minibuses follow major routes to Bloxham and offer convenient collection points. Journey times are limited to one hour, operating between 7:00am to 8:00am and 6:10pm to 7:10pm, Monday to Friday (term time only).
