Sarah Hicklin, Director of Admissions

We are always pleased to welcome new boys and girls between the ages of 4-18 to Oswestry School.

While the main points of entry into the school tend to be at the ages of 4, 10, 11, 13 or 16, in practice pupils may join us at any age and at any stage throughout the year, provided there are places and the entry requirements are met. Boarders are accepted from the age of 11.

We require all applicants, where possible, to attend an informal interview with the Headmaster. We also take the report from the current school into account, where applicable. Prospective pupils are most welcome to spend a day in school with us, or an overnight stay in the case of boarders.

Children under 4 are catered for by our excellent nursery, Oswestry School Prepcare. This prepares them for a seamless transition in their education, right through to A-levels at 18.

Entry into the Sixth Form is dependent upon a good report from the previous school, an interview with the Headmaster and satisfactory GCSE results. International students are welcome, with the Senior School and Sixth Form having over 20 nationalities represented.

"Please don’t hesitate to get in touch if you have any queries – it is our pleasure to make the admissions process as straightforward as possible."
