Thank you for your interest in our school. As a result of the current coronavirus crisis, we are changing the way we are working to provide parents with the peace of mind that they can still plan for their child’s educational future through our Virtual Admissions Process. You can still contact the team using the information below. 

School Admissions Colchester

At Oxford House children enter our Nursery I class in the school year in which they are 3.

As most of our pupils start with us in nursery and follow through to Form VI, places are restricted in the school. However, if there are no places available at the time of registration the child will be placed on a waiting list and parents will be informed as soon as a place becomes available.

How to apply


Please contact our Admissions Registrar Mrs Els Despriet, on 01206 576686 or for an initial conversation about your child and to check availability in the relevant year group.

You can also request a prospectus here.

Visit Us

We encourage parents to come and visit the school. Following your initial enquiry parents are invited to make an appointment to meet the Admissions Registrar for a personal guided tour of the school. This is an informal visit when you will be able to see the children at work, meet some of our dedicated team and hopefully ask any questions you might have.

Register for a Place

Completion of a registration form together with payment of a non-returnable £125 registration fee will enable entry onto the School List. Registration is an indication of interest and is not a guarantee of a place.  Following registration and subject to availability the offer of a place is made.

For entry into lower or upper school an interview or assessment will be required.

Accept your Place

Entry is confirmed when the acceptance documentation is returned together with the deposit of £400.  The Admissions Registrar will forward a welcome letter acknowledging receipt.  The deposit is refundable, following final settlement of your account, at the end of your child’s last term at Oxford House.  Please refer to our terms and conditions, which is available from the Registrar upon request.
