Rose Hill Primary School is an Academy managed by the River Learning Trust and as such is its own admissions authority. The River Learning Trust has delegated the responsibility for admission arrangements for Rose Hill Primary School to the Local Authority, Oxfordshire County Council. 

The schools in River Learning Trust that are in Oxfordshire are consulting on their Admissions Policies for the year 2021/22.  This is primarily to ensure that the Trust’s schools’ policies are in alignment with the in-year admissions arrangements for the OCC which our schools adhere to. The main change to the policies is in the way that distance to the school is measured and this is now “straight-line distance” in line with OCC practice.  Our school’s proposed policy can be found here It is also on the OCC consultation portal. The consultation period will end on Friday 24th January 2020. Should you have any comment or query on the policy please contact [insert name and email address of relevant person at the school].

For admissions to school, from Reception to Year 6, all applications should be made through Oxfordshire County Council.  There is a link below which will take you to OCC’s admissions webpage where you can find guidance on how to apply.  If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to ask us for help – you can phone us on 01865 777937 or email

When you apply for a place at nursery we will usually contact you the term before your child is due to begin attending.  A member of the nursery team will contact you and arrange to visit you at home, to see your child in a familiar environment and to get an understanding of what they enjoy doing.  The team will then talk to you about visits to nursery and settling your child in nursery.
