Thank you for your interest in the Cherwell School.
The Cherwell School is an academy which is part of The River Learning Trust, as such it is its own admissions authority. The River Learning Trust has delegated the responsibility for admission arrangements to the Local Authority for Year Groups 7 to 11.
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: Admissions Policy 2021/22 - Consultation Process 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 Mrs Sarah Beauchamp, Clerk to the Governors at email@example.com
