Exceptional Education at the Heart of the Community

How to Apply

We are delighted that you are thinking about joining the Oasis Byron family!

Here at Oasis Academy Byron it is our mission to support your child on their path to success. We believe each and every one of our young people is capable of reaching their potential with the support of the academy family and friends.

We are a non-selective Academy open to pupils of all religious faiths and those of no faith.  Admissions at Oasis Academy Byron are co-ordinated under the Common Application Form via Croydon Council. If you are a parent or carer and wish to apply for a place at Oasis Academy Byron for the following September, you will need to complete the Common Application Form via the Council website.

Pupils' attitudes to learning are exceptional. They have a mature understanding of the importance of their education and how it will support them in making choices about employment in the future. They are reflective, resilient and articulate.

Applying for a place

Parents, carers and children who wish to visit the Academy before applying for a place are invited to visit at any time. Please contact the school office in order to make arrangements.

For transfer to Year 7, Year 6 children receive the local authority's 'Transfer to Secondary School' booklet via their Primary School, detailing information about all secondary schools in Croydon. Further details about the application process are listed in this booklet.

Children in Year 6 at Oasis Academy Byron should note that transfer to Oasis Academy Coulsdon is not automatic and the common application form must still be completed.

In-Year Applications

Spaces for in-year transfer to all year groups are allocated via Croydon local authority. A common Application Form (CAF) must be completed and submitted to the local authority. However, we do welcome initial enquiries directly to the Academy regarding in-year transfer and contact details are at the bottom of this page.

Appeal Arrangements

For organising and hearing admissions appeals the key dates for 2020/21 can be found on the Croydon website here. For in-year applications, appeals are heard within thirty school days after being lodged. Where an appeal is submitted after the dealine, the appeal may be heard at a later date.
