PARENTS with children due to start primary or secondary school in Oxfordshire next September can now apply via the county council’s website.
They are advised to state three preferences and to include their catchment school as one of these, even if it is their third preference.
The council still accepts postal applications but says applying online helps speed up the applications process.
Postal application forms and information booklets are available from schools and nurseries and copies of the booklets from libraries.
The deadline for primary/junior school applications is January 15 and for secondary school applications it is November 2.
