Admissions

Welcome to Langtree School Admissions

The Langtree School PAN (Planned Admission Number) is 120

In response to the high number of children transferring from primary to secondary in September 2019 and a significant increase in the number of applications for Langtree School, the Governing Body of Langtree School has taken the decision to admit over our determined published admission number of 120, by admitting 144 children to Year 7. We have been working with Oxfordshire County Council to make sure that the offers made on 1 March reflect this decision. Note that we have not determined a higher published admission number – we have simply determined to admit over published admission number for September 2019.

Admissions Policy
