Admission Criteria

Our admissions criteria is reviewed annually. We aim to admit a balance of 40% Protestant, 40% Catholic and 20% of children to represent other faiths, world religions or those who have no religious beliefs.

Parents are actively enouraged to visit Oakwood with their child and guided tours can be arranged with the principal.

Pre-school & P1 Admissions:

The application process for our Pre-school and P1 is governed by the South Eastern Education & Library Board. You MUST fill out a Board application form once they are published in December. Please visit the Board's website and when available download the relevant form for Pre-school or P1. These forms MUST be returned school so that they can be receipted and the deadline for returning them to school will be published here once we have the information from the Board.

P2-P7 Admissions:

Please contact the school in the first instance to arrange an appointment to come in and discuss your needs with the Principal.

Religious Information Slip

(required for applications to all year groups).

As we are an integrated primary and pre-school, we must maintain a religious balance. In an oversubscribed situation, this information becomes particulary important to the decision making process. Please ensure you complete and return this form with your application form. Please contact the school office for the relevant form.
