Starting in Year 7 in September 2021

Parents/Carers of Year 6 pupils will have received a letter and common application form from their primary school in early July 2020. Parents must complete the Rotherham Common Application Form and it should be returned to the Local Authority by 30 November 2020.

If you choose to apply on-line you must do this by 13 November 2020. To apply go to http://www.rotherham.gov.uk/schools


At Oakwood, Year 6 pupils move up to start Year 7 on Monday 05 July 2021 this process is called Transition. Transition allows for a more effective transfer between primary learning and secondary learning and supports pupils to settle early with their new classmates and teachers – it also provides a more effective continuation of the learning process.  It is very popular with our pupils and parents.

Would you like to visit Oakwood?

Due to COVID-19 and Government guidelines around whole school events and school visits, we unfortunately will not be able to accommodate prospective pupils and parents in
our traditional way. Therefore, we will aim to replicate our Open Evening in a new and exciting way with our Virtual Open Evening in October 2020, which you we hope meets your requirements of getting to know the school.

For those families who feel that they would benefit from a visit to the school in their family bubble, please contact the school using the transition@oakwood.ac email address. Visits
would take place after our pupils have finished for the day. Further information on how we will organise this will be shared once we have received your email.

Please remember that individual schools cannot allocate places. The form that you send to the Local Authority is the key to the process. Without it, your child cannot be placed.

Admission Arrangements and Policy

All preferences for Community/Academy/Trust Schools are considered equally in accordance with the Co-ordinated Scheme for Admission to Secondary Schools. Parents/carers are able to name up to three preferences on the Common Application Form.

If you want your child to attend Oakwood High School, you must express your wish in writing using the form provided. Applications must be returned to the Local Authority Admissions section by 30 November 2020 or online by 13 November 2020 for consideration in the initial process. The outcome of this year’s admission round shows that 210 pupils were allocated a place at Oakwood, with 18 pupils on the waiting list, and cannot be taken as a guide to the position for 2020/2021; however, parents/carers may wish to consider this information when expressing a preference.
