Shenington C. of E. VA Primary school adheres to Oxfordshire County Council Schools Admissions Policy.


Children who live in the villages of Shenington and Alkerton are aged 4-11 have traditionally come to Shenington Primary School. We do admit children from outside these areas, providing we have enough space in the year group concerned. Please contact the School Office on 01295 670273 to discuss vacancies in all year groups.


As Shenington Primary School is close to the Warwickshire border we have children from villages such as Tysoe, Edgehill, Oxhill and Whatcote. If you do live in Warwickshire and your child is due to start school in September 2018 it is now possible to apply online.


Applications for Reception 2017 and 2018 at Shenington Primary School from prospective parents living in Warwickshire should be made through Warwickshire County Council.
